Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Beach was lovely, nothing particularly amazing for the hype. Worst part was parking up and being approached and money demanded 50 tala, there were no signs so hard to know what is right. It seems it should be 10 tala, feel somewhat ripped off, and that locals are just there to get money from tourists. Wont be going back to that beach, it's a very unwelcoming approach.

We'd have returned a few times and spent money there eating but it felt like a mafia beach, their entry rules are very unfriendly, left us both with a bad feeling after what should have been a nice day !

This was another highlight to our trip the beach is so lovely and 80 tala for a fale for 14 of us was wonderful to keep our gear all together nice little cafe and bar here they even put a nice woven mat down in the fale for us the water is so warm and clear with a few coloured fish around but more for jumping littlw waves and great for sunbathing with fabulous scernery.

This was my second time here, so I knew what to expect, but I was nonetheless still blown away by how beautiful this beach is. The only thing I noticed that was new (post tsunami) was signs pointing to evacuation routes across the street up onto the hillside, which was great. We rented a fale, picnicked, and snorkeled. A storm blew past, but quickly, and didn’t detract from a great time.

A fantastic beach…coming from Sydney and now living in Melbourne and having lived in the Solomon Islands…this is a great stretch of white sand beach. The view of Nu,utele island from the beach is priceless. We hired a fale and parking and access to the beach for 50 tala. Not bad for a few hours and all money goes to helping the locals rebuild post COVID. A beautiful spot on Upolu that is certainly worth a visit.

Visited 11th of August. Very beautiful outlook. But there just wasn’t much to it, locals were on a few fale but no one in the water. Reading reviews i was expecting a big large beach but it’s really not that long of a stretch.

Highly recommended to any visitor to the Samoan islands. The view you see in pictures is what you get. The ocean is much warmer than the Hawaiian waters due to its location near the equator. Take it from a local who now lives in the USA. Don’t be surprise to find out there are separate families who owns separate traditional beach fale/huts located on the same beach. The beach is shared and part of customary land belonging to separate local families. The small fee that you pay for parking or to use the facilities goes to support these local family owners. The traditional beach fale/huts are painted in separate colors for owners identification purposes. So when you pay the parking or usage fee, make sure it goes to the right local owner. A few of the complaints I’m reading here regarding fees comes from visitors misunderstanding these facts. By the way, these traditional Samoan beach fale/huts are very popular with backpackers and budget travelers who likes to spend a few nights sleeping literally on the beach. An experience not to be miss.

Swimming near the beach is safe, but beware when snorkeling far out near the reef, there is a slight undercurrent especially when the tide is going out. If you’re looking for a good place to snorkel, I highly recommend Palolo Deep Marine reserve. I hope that helps and enjoy your visit.

Probably one of the best beaches in the world. Always peaceful, calm, never overun with tourists. Seems like Samoa is just a hidden gem in the Pacific. Water is so crystal clear. Combined with the warm sun, it is magnificent. If youre on a budget, Taufua Beach Fales is great.
