Tracking my Peace Corps Adventures in Western Samoa

Namu’a Island

Posted by Igor Popstefanija on August 9, 2010

This weekend was Father’s Day in Samoa. Monday is a public holiday, so for the long weekend I joined the JICA volunteers on an outing to Namu’a Island. Namu’a is a small island off the coast of Lalomanu, on Upolu’s east coast. It isn’t counted amoung Samoa’s inhabited islands, but there is a beach fale resort there. There is no electricity on the island, so I thought that it would have a more primal feeling to it. However the resort was really nice. We were able to walk up to the peak of the island (the hike was super steep) and we had a nice night under latern light. All in all an enjoyable time. Pictures below:
