Attractions near the Aggie Grey’s Hotel
Palolo Deep Marine Reserve
This stunning spot is the place to go for snorkelling. Just a few minutes’ walk from the hotel, the reserve protects a stretch of shallow reef between the beach and the harbour, about 100 metres from the shore. The reserve’s main waterhole is surrounded by coral walls and is teeming with colourful tropical fish.
Hire a snorkel or bring your own, and try to time your visit with the high tide. Toilets, showers and changing rooms are available, or just head back to the comfort of your room to rinse off.
Robert Louis Stevenson Museum
Robert Louis Stevenson completed 14 books in four years while living in Samoa. The famous Scottish author of Treasure Island and Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde chose Samoa as the place to spend the final years of his life. Battling tuberculosis, but still writing profusely, he died at age 44 and was buried in the hills above his stately colonial home.
The house is now a museum open to the public (as long as you take off your shoes) and has been restored to look just as it did when the author was penning his famous stories within its walls. Choose from a short but steep 45-minute hike or the longer and easier one-hour route to his burial site.
