Like capitals in Pacific Island nations, the Port of Apia is a little run down. It is, however, a perfect spot for organizing tours, maintaining accommodations, and relaxing. Most of Samoa's attractions are outside the Port of Apia, but there are some places visitors will want to check out.
About five kilometers south of the Port of Apia in the Village of Vailima, the Robert Louis Stevenson Museum was built by the writer. Today, it is well-preserved and maintained, and it contains collections of items from Stevenson's home.
The grave of Robert Louis Stevenson lies at the top of Mount Vaea. Taking about an hour to walk the path to the site, tourists are recommended to make their visit in the morning when it is cooler. Visitors will discover wonderful views from the mountaintop.
At Palolo deep, visitors can rent snorkeling gear and explore the reef and its abundant and colorful marine life.
Travelers who want to visit the Port of Apia, Upolu Island, and Samoa can find a list of scheduled cruises by searching for "Apia" or "Samoa" on the Cruise Compete website.
