Salani Surf Resort offers accessibility to Samoa’s rich culture and beautiful beaches. Although Salani is a dedicated surf resort, they welcome all non-surfing partners and families. They employ well trained boatmen for surf guides, whose job it is to get you safely into the best waves. Whether you are looking for the perfect wave, a relaxing holiday or fantastic beaches, you’ll relax and enjoy!
Savai’is’s premier wave will barrel at any size and has a large, clearly defined channel and current to carry you back out to the lineup.
One of Samoa’s best known big wave spots, Boulders is a left hand point that breaks off a lava cliff starting with a relatively easy drop followed by a steep wall section, then barrels off down the line, often spitting as it ends – sometimes 150m away.
A large bay located on the NE coast containing 4 separate waves; a big wave right hander off one end, a fast shallow left off the other side, and a nice river mouth in the middle with a wedging right and shorter left. The rivermouth is super fun in the North Pacific Groundswells from October to March.
Salani Left is a long, fast breaking full barrel ride over coral reef/flat rock that gets faster, and hollower as you go down the line. This wave is typically surfed from 2-10ft faces. The wave does not end very close to the channel, so on bigger days getting back out can be a little tricky. Best at medium tide with SE swell.
Is located on the North Side of the island which is about a 40min – 1hr drive from Apia, the capital. A steep takeoff but if made one of the best barrels you will ever experience extremely hollow at 3ft and you can drive a bus through it at 6ft. Make sure you have a back up board in the car and a camera! This wave is very popular with Body Boarders!
