Palolo Deep Marine Reserve


A Marine Key Biodiversity Area with a diverse array of coral and fish species, Palolo Deep Marine Reserve is a 5min walk from Apia. Bring your snorkeling gear and a beach towel as it’s a great place for swimming and snorkeling. Reef shoes are optional but try and arrange your visit at high tide. Basic shower and change room facilities provided. Open daily from 8am-6pm.

Description

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.
