Palolo Deep Marine Reserve
This very convenient spot is only five minutes walk from the centre of Apia (head east to Vaiala Beach). There’s a blue hole surrounded by walls of coral and tropical fish so it’s great for snorkelling, diving and swimming or just relaxing with a picnic. There are toilets, showers and changing rooms and snorkel gear can be hired.
Gear is available for hire ($5.00/mask & $2.00/snorkel). It is
recommended that visitors plan their snorkel trips for high tide as attempting to reach the high tide could result
in damaged coral or coral cuts for the swimmer.
