To me it is just a beach and not too flash at that, quite rocky in places but reasonable if you want to swim paddle around or even fish. Ask the locals if fishing is OK first as sometimes it is not allowed. Beach fales and toilets available and picnic area too. I much prefer the beach at Sa'anapu and it is also closer to Apia.

We tripped over for a day trip saw some cool fish, beautiful white sands and paid by the vanload for use of a fale by the beach. We couldn't get to the main beach as the resort was under construction but had been there on a previous visit. It was such a beautiful spot and a fantastic place to spend the day.

The lack of signage in the area and the demand for a fee before you know if a place is worth a visit is annoying- I paid 10 tala to drive to matareva beach ( close by) to find the fales and restaurant was closed.
So when the entrance fee sign came up at return to paradise i gave it a miss and didnt get to see if it was worth it, I got lost trying to navigate around the nearby roads without street signs and didnt find the advertised Famaifili village resort (who didnt answer the phone) so decided to go back to Tafatafa beach where there is no cultural fee to access the beach- only a fee to use it.
I'm quite happy to pay for something once I know that what I'm paying for is worth it but feel villagers would gain more if they encouraged tourists to enter -then tried to sell them something (food , drink, stay on the beach etc) rather than trying to charge before you know what you are paying for...

Don't get sucked in by this. Yes, it is where the famous movie was shot a hundred years ago. BUT the village fee is high. Then when you go through there was no where to swim, except if you hire a fale. Go to Virgin Cove instead!
