The beating bright heart of Polynesia – Samoa is a long sigh of delight. An ancient land and one created rugged at the seams; where tropical gardens blaze, waterfalls tumble, and exotic cultures explode into a colourful frenzy of song, dance and fire. For surfers, Samoa still remains a rare curiosity, skewered from the well-beaten track. Her waves are wild and perfect – consistently rolling in around the calendar and arching between 3-10ft depending on the season. Yet, as a still relatively untouched spot – you can find killer swells free from the tangle of crowds. Surf culture is still finding her footing here, but a handful of rare and exquisite surf resorts are helping to put this spirited island on the map. Samoa's surf resorts offer barefoot luxury for couples and families.
