  1. Alofaaga

These are spectacular blowholes that eject water upwards by nearly 100 feet. If you remember the volcanic formations, these blowholes occurred due to the lava flows that connect underground in different layers, and they open up in a clifftop. Waves hit the rocks at the bottom end, sending water inside the blowholes, and they subsequently eject it into the air. For fun, locals put coconuts in the holes for them to be blown in the air.

  1. Accommodation in a fale

Experience the Samoan way of life by spending the night under a thatched roof and wooden poles in the walls. Such accommodation spots include the lalomanu and Salamamu beaches. The best thing is that the budget for this kings-accommodation is cheap.
