Lost in the middle of the ocean Samoa is one of the world’s most isolated countries. Reached only from New Zealand or Fiji, the tiny nation of tribal tattoos and Polynesian culture is a fantastic way to escape it all. Explore empty beaches, sleep in the open in the traditional fale houses or get down to magical sinkholes. It’s rugged volcanic shore, much similar to Hawaii, contrasts with the sandy fine sand beaches. Samoa is where the day begins every morning and the first country to enter a new year. From its Easternmost tip, one can look out into American Samoa, the last place each day ends at.
