Samoa Winter Escape
Samoa is the perfect destination to skip town for and escape the winter blues. Full of natural beauty and a proud cultural heritage, Samoa’s tropical climate is the perfect escape from those rainy days and frosty mornings. Swim in the clear waters of the Pacific Ocean without having to wear a wetsuit, go on some hikes or just lounge on the beach. Winter? What winter?
If you plan on travelling to Samoa in late July and early August you may want to check out the Samoa Swim Series.
The Samoa Swim Series attracts a lot of attention among locals, visitors and open water swimmers.
With three big swims over three days, plus a 5km and 10km open water swim as well as loads of unofficial swims, the Samoa Swim Series is a big event on Samoa’s event calendar. In addition to the three official swims there are the unofficial swims either side of the series to cater for those who arrive before the series and those who stay after the series.
