At first i noticed Falealupo was twice the distance from the port but it had quite a few good reviews so we set off hoping for the best. After 2hrs driving on a road which turned to sand near the end we were starting to wonder if we'd made the right decision, but then we arrived!! I've surfed for 35+ years and been to alot of beaches around the world and this beach would be top 5 for me! We were welcomed by Savi who is a lovely host and although we arrived a little late they still cooked us dinner while we watched an amazing sunset on the beach with a cold beer. The Fales were clean and all setup for us with clean bedding and mosquito nets. Breakfast was nice with tea and coffee and kept ours kids going until lunchtime. The snorkelling was amazing straight of the beach, nice and safe for the kids and although the swell was on the smaller side there still some nice waves to surf at the northern end of the beach. There are 2 toilets and 3 showers (2 of those showers outdoor) which were adequate. If your beach fale hoppers like us, this place is fantastic and definitely worth the extra drive. We felt welcome, safe and really looked after by Savi and her family. Our kids who are 12 and 10 years old had an absolute ball here snorkelling and exploring the rock pools, they even enjoyed the food which was a relief. My only complaint is, i wish wed booked in for a week!!

We stayed at the Falealupo Beach Fales for 1 night with our family of four. While the location is remote and harder to get to, it is worth it for the amazingly beautiful beach. The beach fales are right on the beach with a short walk down to the water. Good swimming and snorkeling straight off the beach. Plenty of picnic tables to sit and relax at. We had two beach fales and they were basic but what was expected for the type of accommodation. Thin mattress to sleep on, mosquito net to let down at night so you don't get bitten, also a light to use at night on the ceiling. There are also washing lines strung between the fales, great to dry your towels and togs on. We didn't get the best sleep but it was a great experience, something we will remember forever! The buffet dinner and breakfast were served for all guests staying and were nice, with plenty of food and quite a few dishes to choose from. Staff were friendly. Only thing that could be improved was the music from the kitchen, it was quite loud and started up at 7am while they prepared breakfast. Was a bit noisy and interrupted the otherwise peaceful serene setting.

Initial communications by email were difficult as the place is so remote. From Vai-Moana we arranged with a local shuttle driver, Nu, to bring us both over. A slow driver, but suits me fine. Often you will pass along the way several fruit stalls, so stop off buy up delicacies like pepino and pineapples. Don’t forget also some big 4L bottles of water. Arrived at Falealupo at 1pm and the place seemed deserted. Got to our fale but still no bed, or any water in our one and only en-suite. Eventually we did get a bed fitted later in the afternoon. We used a smoking coil to give extra mosquito protection. The only place I did notice mozzies was in the common bathrooms – so don’t sit on the throne too long. As in just about all Samoa fale there are no coat hooks inside to hang any belongings, so I had my inside clothes line up to do the job. Plenty of clothes lines outside up between the fale, but watch your necks. Some with picnic table along the foreshore. Good in the shady spots. But nothing dries fast as there never seemed to be much wind. Humidity always high. Now, in all our travels, my Mrs has always been insistent that we have a bucket of water at the bottom of the fale stairs so to rinse the sand off our tootsies. Good idea. So, she places the buck and then trots off to the office for something-or-rather. I’m sitting down unpacking inside. Oink! Oink! Along comes Miss Piggy and drinks all the bucket of fresh water. So I’m thinking: when my Mrs comes back she’s going to think I tipped it over – or shall I tell her a porky? The resort soon filled up during the afternoon. Dinner and breakfast were very filling. Guests seem to leave their phones charging on the dining room table without any problems. We enjoyed several late afternoon walks. One to the far end of the beach and to the old church ruins (St Joseph’s). Well worth following the trail right through to the French Catholic Missionary memorial. The back over the road to visit the modern church (Mary the Mother of God). Early morning Catholic Mass is usually at 6am on Thursdays. Walk the opposite direction from the resort and you will find a small roadside shop. Then a sign reading: Keep Falealupo Clean. Then you keep walking while trying to side step the road rubbish. There are further beaches to enjoy and take a dip. The coast road is always close so not too difficult to get back on the road and under some shade. Definitely the best (and most easy to get to) corals we ever saw in the whole of Samoa (and we stayed over at many resorts). It seemed to us that many travelers just spent one night. But we reckon you need a week. Get out and walk. Peace and quiet, with other intrepid travelers at the very end of the road on Savai’i. Definitely we will return.

Beautiful setting. Relaxing peaceful with good swimming and snorkeling. Several degrees hotter than rest of Savaii. Wonderful hosts provided very good meal within a couple of hours of out arrival. Well worth the drive.

Fales are somewhat basic, it is only a thin mattress on the flloor, but the beach is stunning, long sandy area, clear water, remote and quiet which makes it a perfect spot to relax. Snorkeling was not amazing, but still pretty decent. Food is just so-so. If you want to reach the place easily, then rent a car as you cannot rely much on the local buses. Overall, a good place to stay for 1 night or 2 and really feel far away from the world!
