Palolo Deep Marine Reserve

The only beach in Apia to the East of the harbour. Not really much a beach, though, it’s mostly coral gravel. It’s an official underwater park. The snorkelling initially seems pretty poor but if you venture further out (probably a good quarter mile swim) it gets a bit more interesting with the occasional turtle and black tip reef shark. Ask at the entrance where to swim – there’s a marker post that helps. If you are stuck in Apia it’s not a bad way to kill a few hours or just hang out at the "beach". You can rent snorkels here although it’s a good idea to take your own. Also check the tide chart at the gate before you pay, at low tide there is a long paddle out over very sharp coral to get anywhere deep enough to snorkel.
