Upolu island

Ultimate guide (October 2019)
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]

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.

The ferry ride is dangerous, as the water is choppy. But flights can be cancealed or changed in departure time. So it is best to get to the airport at least 3 hours before the departure time.

What about ferry from Samoa to Americal Samoa? I know that it runs three times a week. Or maybe flight between islands is better?
