Samoa has been blessed with some of the best swimming spots in the South Pacific, not just any old swimming spots but some incredible naturally formed locations from coastal saltwater lagoons, to pools crystal clear pools below stunning waterfalls, as well as my favourite, Piula Cave Pool.

To swim here involves climbing down about 20 very steep steps to a platform about two meters above an inland tidal pool that’s a mixture of saltwater and freshwater – the reward on a 30 degree day is the coolest swimming hole on the planet.
