The village of Lano on Savai’i Island is one of the cleanest and friendliest villages on Savai’i. Joelan Beach Fales is located on Lano beach and is close to the local store “Taefu Store Asaga”. Joelan is next to the largest lagoon in the whole of Samoa and it’s the best spot in Samoa for Kite surfing. Also lots of fun for swimming, snorkelling and watching the sunrise and sunset.
Savai’i is the biggest of the two main islands of Samoa. You’ll love and enjoy the beautiful beaches, traditional villages and the relaxed and friendly Samoan people.
The town of Salelologa is the main port and market place on Savai’i. We have banks and stores here. Located at Tuasivi is the local Police station and Hospital.
One of the main tourist attractions in Savai’i is the Taga blow holes.
Close to Joelan Beach Fales in Lano is the 1905-1911 Lava field, where whole villages disappeared under the lava flowing out of a nearby crater.
You can visit the remains of the churches, buried under the lava and the famous Virgin’s Grave, where a young maiden’s grave was miraculously spared from being covered by the lava.
Other attractions include the Falealupo Peninsula with the famous Canopy Walk and ‘Swimming with Turtles’ in Fagamalo. You can easily go around the island in one day with your rental car or ask us to organise a tour guide.
