Beach Fale
a beach fale ready to receive visitors at Lalomanu, Upolu


Sadly, most of the accommodations listed on this page were destroyed by the 2009 tsunami.


As you come down from Lalomanu village and go west along the coast you'll pass Litia Sini's, Taufua's, Sieni's, Romeo's, and Malo, in that order. Litia Sini's Beach Fales is the most developed with 16 mattress-equipped fale in a long row closed to the road but open to the sea.

Taufua's Beach Fales has a small store you may visit, plus a restaurant and both open and closed beach fale. On weekends their beach is crowded with Samoan day-trippers. Sieni and Ropert's Fales, right next to Tuafua's, is also noisy and has poor security. Romeo's is part of the same strip. The last two are used mostly by day-trippers and not recommended for an overnight stay.

Namu'a Island

On Namu'a Island off Upolu's east end, Namu'a Beach Fale offers seven thatched fale right on the beach. Turtles are often seen here, and the snorkeling is excellent. The walk around the island at low tide is lovely (but bring insect repellant). The boat transfer from Mutiatele on the main island is included in the price.
