Tourists walking along road in Samoa

Dress

Visitors who enter a Samoan village or attend a church service should show respect by choosing appropriately modest clothing.

Men and women can wear a lavalava (sarong). Other options include trousers, a skirt or shorts and a blouse or t-shirt.

When swimming or sunbathing, swimwear must always be worn. 

Swimwear should not be worn in a Samoan village, but it is fine to wear it at a resort or hotel.
