Stop at the famous Vailele Village for a unique cultural experience. You will be welcomed into a meeting house with Kava Ceremony. After this, head outside for entertainment and view/participate in the making of a umu or food cooked Samoan style. Enjoy tasting the freshly cooked taros, bananas and palusami-(baby taro leaves cooked in coconut cream). Drive along the shore, and observe the sharply eroded, dramatic lava cliffs leading to Piula College. Arrive at the Piula Cave Pool, a naturally occurring freshwater cave pool. Dont forget your swim wear and take a plunge in the subterranean turquoise waters exploring the underwater passage linking two cave chambers as you swim in the pool.
Don’t forget your camera!
