The Samoa Islands are located in the Pacific Ocean, some of them are independent and belong to the homonymous state, the others are politically dependent on the United States of America.
They are islands full of charm and natural beauty to be discovered. Their territory is still strongly characterized by the presence of native tribes, which, with their traditions and their tribal rites, make their atmosphere really special. The Samoa Islands are a real tropical paradise where you can relax and focus on your physical and mental well-being.
The Samoa islands are characterized by the tropical climate: very hot, humid and rainy. Like all the States that are only a few parallels away from the equator, they present, during the year, a more rainy and a less humid season. The greatest amount of rain is found in the period from December to March, while the driest season is between June and September. It is the recommended time to visit them, so as to fully enjoy them, also because it is in the rainiest season that the Samoa Islands are exposed to the passage of tropical cyclones.
The volcanic islands of Tutuila, Ta’u, Ofu and Olosega are the wettest ones, while the atolls and islets of Aunu’u, Swains and Rose throughout the year receive much less rainwater.
