South Pacific - Samoa (Chapter)
This is the Samoa chapter from Lonely Planet's South Pacific guidebook.
Anchored at the heart of Polynesia, Samoa rises languidly from the sea, draped in jungles, dotted with flower-filled villages and surrounded by iridescent lagoons.
Sweet, safe and gentle, Samoa excels in unpretentious beachside accommodation, friendly people and peace and quiet.
