Fagali A Great Destination

Fagali is on an island called Upolu in the South Pacific. The population of the village of Fagali is small, at less than 2,000 people. There is only one airport here and until 2002, this small airport actually had a grass landing strip.

One of the most popular affairs on Fagali is FiaFia Night. FiaFia is a Samoan holiday that celebrates 3000 years of culture according to tripadvisor.com.br. There is a buffet of traditional foods, dancing, songs and even an elaborate fire knife dance to hold you entranced.

If food and fire isn’t enough to draw you to Fagali, there is also amazing off shore diving. Here you will see fish of endless varieties but also turtles. It isn’t often you can say you swam with turtles. There are areas of cave pools that are amazing to explore and scuba diving lessons available on locally, so you can be sure to take in all the exotic sea life at many depths of the ocean.

Not everyone is into water, if you are more of a land loving visitor, Fagali has a Samoan Cultural Village but be warned, the locals expect visitors to respect their traditions and cultures according to radionz.co.nz. There is beautiful landmark, definitely worth seeing, the Immaculate Conception of Mary Cathedral and a museum, the Robert Louis Stevenson Museum, which use to be the home of the author himself.

A final destination, to wrap up your visit to the island, should be a place that you can buy yourself a physical moment. The memories are great but sometimes, to hold a piece of the island in your hand is what makes it perfect. Plantation House Samoa or Pacific Jewell Gift Shop & Gallery are just two of the many options you will find to buy that perfect piece of the island to take home with you.

Fagali’I airport itself offers flights to and from Pago Pago and American Samoa. The airport has been opened and closed several times due to noise complaints and safety issues.
