Ragtag Salelologa stretches up from the ferry terminal, offering little of interest except for a fairly languid market; if your needs run more to groceries than geegaws, the big Frankies supermarket across the road has loads of fresh produce and groceries. There's nowhere better for supplies on the entire island.
Heading north you’ll pass a tight series of villages fronting a shallow lagoon. It’s only once you round the point at Tuasivi that things get exciting, as long white-sand beaches come into view, outlining the vivid aquamarine lagoon. The best of them, Si’ufaga and Lano, are among Savai’i’s finest. The area also has numerous freshwater pools and springs for bathing.
