If wanting a nice beach for swimming there are heaps better ones on Upolu especially down the south coast. Vaiala beach is basically just rocks with flat water.

Flora the hostess with the mostest was absolutely a treat. She went out of her way to make sure we had an amazing time. The accommodation is basic but very clean and tidy and met all our needs! Very comfy and enjoyable.

I don't think I've ever seen people swim here. It really is a stop on a tour of town and not suitable for a picnic or day at the beach. For starters there is not real shore - its the seawall then rocks then the...More
