Family holidays with children in Samoa - attractions and entertainment

What destinations should tourists with children choose in Samoa? Isn’t this country too hot for children? Is it safe to visit Samoa, are there wild animals? Parents usually ask many questions that appear when they plan to visit the tropics with their little ones. It is easy to answer all these questions in several words – Samoa is a great place to enjoy a pleasant and peaceful vacation.

Thanks to quite comfortable weather and constant temperature above +24°C, it is possible to enjoy a nice vacation even during the rainy season in Samoa. There is one more advantage in visiting this country during the rainy season – the prices are significantly lower than during the peak summer months. This can help big families to save on vacation. When it comes to wild animals, they are not present here. The same applies to poisonous snakes. Bloodsucking insects can make any vacation less enjoyable, but it is possible to protect your family from them by using anti-mosquito nets indoors and repellents outdoors. By the way, it is better to buy local repellents because they are more efficient and adapted to local conditions.
There are no amusement parks targeted at children in Samoa, but the nature of these islands is beautiful and unusual. Exploration of local natural attractions is an unforgettable journey. Safe beaches with soft sand and turquoise water, comfortable silent lagoons perfect for snorkeling, green palm trees with yellow coconuts, yachting rides – local views look like paradise type pictures or postcards. How about walking on volcanic lava petrified more than a century ago or swimming in a waterfall? A visit to a Samoan village is one more interesting activity. Visitors can learn many interesting things in a traditional village, for example, how to open a coconut, make a basket from palm tree leaves, or cook food in the umu stove. Copyright

In October, Samoa celebrates a holiday dedicated to children (similar to Mother’s Day). This is the time when locals cherish all kids. It doesn’t matter what part of Upolu or Savaii you visit together with your child at this time of the year, local people will always greet you with smiles and respect. To find the most suitable and interesting excursions and activities in Samoa, don’t forget to visit the Tourist Center in Apia (tel. +685 63500 – English speaking line). All hotels in Samoa offer beach recreation but not all of them accept tourists with children. Such hotels are in minority but tourists need to check all requirements carefully before making a reservation.
The Samoan Outrigger is a nice choice for families with children. Children below 12 can stay at this hotel for free if the family doesn’t need any extra beds. This is a midscale hotel with a laundry. Tanoa Tusitala is perfectly suitable for a trouble-free and calm vacation. This hotel has a swimming pool for children, a playground, spacious family rooms, and offers babysitting services. Children aged 2 to 12 can stay free of charge if they do not require an extra bed. Cradle-type beds for infants are available upon request but they are paid.

The Taumeasina Island Resort is located on a small island not far from Vaiala Beach. It offers family rooms, babysitting services, and a playground for children. That being said, children aged 3 and older are obliged to have a separate bed that is available for an extra fee. The island location of the hotel is comfortable for families with children because the territory is large and there are no cars. The territory of the hotel is separated by an open and visible strip of land that has nothing except a road. This is very handy because parents can easily keep an eye on their kids. Besides excursions in Apia and visits to the natural attractions of Upolu, tourists do not need to go anywhere because they have all they need at hand – a private beach, swimming pool, canoeing, snorkeling, sauna, laundry, garden, restaurant, bar, spa, fitness center, and souvenir shop.
The Maninoa Beach Hotel is a wonderful place to stay on the south coast. This hotel has a safe beach suitable even for very small children. Tourists can stay at this hotel or visit its territory during the daytime. Bathrooms and showers, tourists are welcome to organize picnics or eat in cafes. The prices are significantly lower compared to other resorts. Vacationers with older children should visit Palolo Deep Marine Reserve. This is a colorful and educational place where visitors can learn more about the underwater life of the region.
