South Pacific yacht vacations are increasingly popular with our clients seeking a destination that offers beautiful natural environment and at the same time excitement, adventure and new cultures to discover. Consisting of ten islands, Samoa is one destination that should not be missed when organising a South Pacific yacht charter itinerary. Samoa is considered the heart of Polynesia and is known for its 3000-year-old 'Samoan Way' of life called by the locals as Fa'a Samoa. It is represented by a guideline for every Samoan on how to lead their lives, which includes celebrating and embracing traditional values, their culture and the environment. There is a selection of outstanding South Pacific yachts, including motor yachts, sailing yachts or catamarans available for Samoa yacht charter and you can view some of them below this article. For more information and a fully-personalised list of yachts that best suit your needs, budget, dreams and requirement, please don't hesitate to contact our experienced charter brokers.

The main islands of Upolu and Savai'i are fringed by magnificent coral reefs and lagoons, overlooked by volcanic peaks. Inland, the rugged interior hides lush rain forests, cascading waterfalls, steep gorges and crystal clear cave pools. The most populated is the island of Upolu, which also features the Faleolo International airport (APW) and the harbour capital of Apia.

Yacht charterers visiting Apia on their yacht might want to see the Robert Louis Stevenson's Museum, Palolo Deep Marine Reserve, Piula Cave Pools or the Papase'ea Sliding Rocks. Robert Louis Stevenson, known as 'Tusitala' (Samoan for 'taller of tales') spent his final years in Samoa where he wrote most of his books, including Treasure Island. Vailima, the stunning mansion of Robert Louis Stevenson has been converters into a museum and is also well worth a visit. Guests can also visit his grave, which is situated on the top of Mt Vaea along a trail named by the locals as 'The Road of the Loving Heart'. 
To soak up the Samoan sun and do some swimming visit the south side of the island where you will find the Lalomanu Beach. This beach has been selected as one of the top 10 most beautiful beaches in the world! You will also find To Sua Ocean Trench here, which is a 30-metre deep crater filled with sea water. The Trench is surrounded by breathtaking gardens and is a often used as a picnic spot amongst Samoans.

Next up you could visit the big island of Savai'i, renowned for its gentle and traditional way of life, pristine scenery and important archeological sites. Here you will come across the alien-like landscape of Saleaula Lava Fields and the Virgin's Grave, the mesmerising Afu Aau Waterfall and the amazing Alofaaga Blowholes. The adventurous types can take a walk up to the Falealupo Rainforest Canopy, climb the Banyan Tree and cross the suspension bridge for a fantastic few of the rainforest and Savai'i coastline. And those with a romantic flair, there is the Cape Mulinu'u, one of the first places in the world to see the sunrise.
