Things to do

Aniva’s accommodation is a great place to base yourself and from there explore all the islands. There is also so much to see and do in and around Apia itself! Visit the food market with all the small stands selling fruits and vegetables, or the flea market with the hand-made crafts and clothing. For the more adventurous, Palolo Deep snorkelling is a 5 minute drive, and Papaseea Sliding Rocks are a 15 minute drive. Talk to your friendly hosts about daily local attractions to suit your interests; we have a lot of local knowledge! For example, if you are leaving our accommodation early morning, at 9 am you can watch the Samoa police band marching up to the government building to raise the flag.

Palolo Deep Marine Reserve

Only 5 minutes drive away this is a fantastic place to go snorkelling with the family.

Apia Markets

Experience the vibrance and diversity of the craft markets, ideal for gifts and souvenirs.

Apia Food Market

To Sua Ocean Trench

Lalomanu Beach

I can organise a day trip. Book a beach fale and spend the day snorkelling, swimming, or basking in the sun. Other attractions such as Sapoaga waterfall are a short drive away.

Robert Louis Stevenson’s Grave and Homestead

Take a walk up Mt Vaea to the historic resting place of Robert Louis Stevenson. You can also explore the incredible gardens and homestead where he lived. This is located a 2 minute drive from Aniva’s Place.
