Beautiful beach with facilities for meals, shade areas ( Fale's to rent) and clean bathrooms. Easily spend a whole day there and there is the opportunity to stay in the simple resorts on the beach.

Lalomanu is a definite place to visit if you are in Samoa. The white sandy beach and crystal clear water attracts many visitors. We stayed at Taufua Beach Fales which are located on the beach. We really enjoyed the family atmosphere there and the food was amazing.

Amazing beach, easily the best we saw in Samoa. If you're looking for a beach, this is the one. $50 tala for a car and that gives you a fale (open hut) and toilet access. I hired snorkeling gear for another $15 tala and a 2-seat kayak for $20 tala. Took about 1.5 hours each way from Apia. Google maps... More

It is worth the drive to this beautiful part of the island. Dine a Anita's Cafe right on the beach, the girls are lovely and the food is cheap, local and fresh.

Excellent snorkelling straight off the beach - not a lot of coral but a lot of variety of fish! the water was incredibly clear and warm.. This was like a photoshopped postcard.. perfect white sand & stunning water.

We only stopped there for lunch and a swim. But, next time we visit Samoa we'd like to spend a few nights in one of the fales on the beach. We had a yummy lunch of curry, chop suey, octopus in coconut cream, taro chips and poke. Had a swim in the lovely blue ocean and the very relaxed atmosphere... More

Nice beach but much busier than any others on the eastern/southern coast. The fales and restaurants etc. were also more expensive. For a quieter, more budget option just continue along the coast to some other beaches.

The beach was absolutely pristine and the water warm. After a swim take advantage of the beach fales to relax and unwind, taking in the scenic views and a cooling breeze that blows off the ocean. A great place to stop and appreciate what the locals call home!

We stopped here for lunch & a midday swim & wee blown away by the beautiful beach. The water is crystal clear, the sand lovely & white & the beach is scattered with brightly coloured fales. We could have stayed all day!
