Samoan Cultural and Mangrove Eco Experience

Saturdays (6 hrs) -

Touch the hidden side of Samoa. Sample the traditional cuisine of Samoa and learn about village life from a Paramount Matai (chief). At Fituafe's Indigenous Vai Villas kayak through winding and dense mangroves to dip this in Safata Bay. Witness firsthand climbing a coconut tree and how coconut cream is naturally made.

Fituafe's Indigenous Vai Villas Samoa, located on the central and beautiful south coast of Upolu, is an authentic and rich blend of sustainability, ecology, culture, marine sanctuary, exercise and fun. Kayak through the overhanging mangroves, twisting and turning your way 1.5km to the estuary and beach on Safata Bay. Return through the mangroves.

Watch a young Samoan lad scale a coconut tree to fetch a mature coconut ready for making coconut cream. Fituafe, our Paramount Chief, will explain the land, mangrove tour, legends of the area and people. A scrumptious, authentic Samoan meal on the verandah of the Vai Villa Lodge is your finale.
