I like the beach, I really like a great beach!
So on my latest trip to Samoa, I thought it’d be a great idea to try and find the very best beach in Samoa. I’m pretty sure I found it too!
What makes the Best Beach in Samoa you say?
There are a few things that make a beach better than other beaches.
- Private It should be a bit private, off the beaten tourist track. You want to have some fun in the water and on the beach, without worrying about upsetting other people
- Surroundings It should have some shelter from the wind so it can be enjoyed on those slightly windy days. It should get lots of sun, but it should also have some shade for the super white people like myself.
- Sand The sand should be awesome. Gold sand, soft and not full of sharp shells and stones.
- Clear water and some fish Clear water is pretty essential to a great beach, and a few fish certainly help.
So, where is the best beach in Samoa I hear you say?
It may come as no surprise to those of you who know Samoa, to learn that the best beach is on the South Coast. The South Coast of Samoas islands are rich with golden sands and clear water.
Only a couple of hundred metres east of the To Sua Ocean Trench you’ll find this place, the best beach in Samoa…
The sand is awesome, it’s super private and it ticks all the boxes for me. There is a small track that leads down to it from the main road. If you can find this beach, you’ll be pleased you did, it’s worth the hunt, because I believe this is definitely the best beach in Samoa.
How to get there
Check out the map below. You’ll see the track on the right/east of the beach, that’s how you get there. Follow that track, and there is a rough track that will take you to this beach. I managed to get down there just fine in my Hynudai i30, a small hatchback car with not much ground clearance, so just about any car will get down there.
The secret is out!
So if you find this beach, or if you find an even better beach in Samoa, let me know in the comments below! I’d love to hear what you think 🙂
