Siva Afi Cultural Show - Fire Knife Dancing, Traditional Siva and Dinner

1 review
Experience an exciting side of Sāmoan culture at Siva Afi’s cultural show. Thrill at the spectacle of the modern ailao, a style of fire knife dancing that traces back to the battle dances of pre-colonial Sāmoa, and enjoy a traditional performance of the graceful Siva Samoa dance. Before the show, sit down for an authentic Sāmoan feast prepared especially for you. Make sure to book in advance: with one show a week and limited spaces, you don’t want to miss out!

Hired a car so we had to find it ourselves which was a bit tricky but well worth it! Clams are inside the roped and buoyed area about 75 metres from the beach. $10 tala to pay to the village. Doesn't get very deep so all levels should be able to swim out in beautiful clear warm water. A must do

Absolutely exciting and brilliant. Remember to go IN to the roped off area, that’s where the amazing clams, fish and coral are!

200 m swim from the beach are these amazing animals there for all to see. The colors were just incredible. Pretty easy swim for inexperienced and safety rope out there for anyone who needs a break. Swim around and check out the reef as well, some amazing fish to see as well. I would suggest goiing on the incoming tide or at high tide.

Not many places in the world you would see so many clams so easy. If you are coming to Lefaga Bay from the west, look out for the 'Return to Paradise' sign and on the left is that road, don't take it. Also do not take the next one which shows Gagaifoolevao, it is the next to the left you want that shows Savaia/Tafagamanu. At the end of that road (has no seal in places and lots of bumpy/pothole parts) you come to a blue coloured fale at the T junction with ladies sitting in there with equipment. Park up alongside there or over in the large car park opposite where there is a large blue building- The Womens Centre- this is where you can change/use toilet. Pay the ladies about 10 tala each person first. They will give you good directions how to find the clams. Go down the steps in front of them, out to the roped buoys, under the rope for about another 5-8m and all along there are many clams. I only saw one dead one. Some are huge, most are very colourful (blues and greens) and you can see their large breathing holes and see them breathing. Some are baby ones and others are the biggest I have ever seen, eg 1m across. It was completely calm even though further along the coast it was rough. Easy to walk out when we went. Only other fish we saw was at the beginning around the step area. Well worth a visit.

One thing to see in Samoa is the giant clams. Amazing the size of them. It’s a small walk or snorkel out to them. Had to believe they grow up to that size.
