The benefit of this for visitors coming to the area is that they are rewarded with some of the most unspoilt and breathtaking scenery anywhere in the world. Populated by proud and powerful people who are as warm and welcoming today as their fierce and brave ancestors in days gone by, the locals are as attracted to Samoa as the inherent natural beauty of the islands.
