World's best beaches: Lalomanu
We're mapping the best beaches in the world, with the help of our readers.
Samoa is a stunning country. We had a wonderful time, staying in fales at Vavau and exploring the south coast of Upolu and the inland National Park.
The highlight was Lalomanu beach, a genuine piece of paradise.
White sand, tropical fish, friendly locals. Gorgeous.
Sadly, Lalomanu was hammered in the September 2009 tsunami but is recovering well.
