Upolu island

Ultimate guide (June 2023)
Upolu - is the capital island of Samoa in the South Pacific. There are no many good beaches. The main thing here is that it still has the spirit the real Polynesia. As for disadvantages we may note that you will be charged some fee to access any significant attraction, - no matter would it be a beach or a waterfall inside the island. It looks like a local tradition, so you'll have to respect it (and to pay). Shore and seabed: rocks, sand. [edit]
This island ranks #35 of the "Best islands in Oceania"

Hotels [edit]

The island has a good choice of hotels, but overall prices are very high. You can save a little, if you stay in the so-called fales. These are privately owned guesthouses in villages.
