PINE TREES, SOFT SAND, and AVAS (RIP TIDES) | SAILELE, AMERICAN SAMOA

We're heading back to the North side to the tiny village of SAILELE in AMERICAN SAMOA.

The beach at Sailele has some of the softest sand in this US Territory, along with a magical grove of pine trees. You almost feel like you're next to a mountain lake instead of on a tropical island, if it wasn't for the sound of crashing waves and the feel of the warm breeze blowing across your face.

Nate explains the signs and dangers of an AVA, or Rip Tide. So before you step into the beautiful, warm waters at Sailele, gaze out to the reef, where the waves are breaking and look for the treacherous waters of the Ava.

Back on-shore, the kids spent hours playing in the sand, building a crab village, and competing in crab races.

If you haven't been to Sailele yet, this video will show you just some of the treasures that are hidden in this remote village. Keep your eyes out for our follow-up Sailele, where we'll explore the other side of the beach, with it's flowerpot island and tide pools.

As always, thank-you so much for watching and for sharing our videos with your friends and family! We are so humbled every week when we read the stories you share with us in the comments down below. We love you all!

10 Things NOT To Do in Samoa

Get more Tips here!

The Samoan islands are surrounded by miles of pristine beaches, crystal blue ocean, and dazzling reef. But keep in mind that Samoa is a conservative country, and you should do your research ahead of time. Here’s our list of 10 things you should NOT in Samoa.

1. Don’t Stay Standing
When it’s time to get down to business, you’ll notice that Samoans all sit down on the floor to engage in discussion. It’s also considered rude to eat or drink while you’re standing.


2. Don’t Indulge in Kava
It’s customary to take part in the kava ceremony. This narcotic brew is made with the roots of a pepper plant, and the cup of liquid is passed around for everyone to sip and enjoy. Overindulging in the drink can decrease your reaction times and motor coordination.


3. Don’t forget to brush up on the Culture
Samoan Cultural Village and Knowledgeable guides will take you around through different exhibits where you’ll be given a fun history lesson. You’ll also be taught coconut weaving, watch an entertaining dance performance, and be treated to a traditional meal cooked over an earth oven.


4. Don’t Underestimate a Beach Fale
A fale is a hut on the beaches. You can actually rent one and wake up to the waves crashing right at your feet. These handmade structures range from simple to luxurious, but to get a true experience, you’ll definitely want to stay in the old school version made of wood and dried coconut fiber.


5. Don’t Leave the Water Without Your Lava Lava
After soaking up some sun on the beach, make sure to cover up with a lava lava afterward. It’s similar to a sarong, and it basically covers up your body so that you don’t offend the locals. And keep in mind, the lava lava is worn by both men and women.


6. Don’t Forget to Pay Taefu T Matafeo Store a Visit
Between Salelologa and the north coast, you’ll find a tiny establishment called Taefu T Matafeo Store. Inside, you can sip on some of the best espressos ever, while nibbling on homemade cakes. They also serve up light fare, including kimchi, and they have more than enough icy beer to go around.


7. Don’t Go Chasing Waterfalls…Just Joking
Samoa’s backdrop is rich with gorgeous tropical forests that are home to some of the most stunning waterfalls. On Upolu Island, you will find Sopoaga Waterfall at the foot of Lotofaga Village. At the base of the falls, you can also take part in an umu demonstration and coconut husking.


8. Don’t Be Surprised by Beach Fees
In Samoa, the majority of the beaches are owned by families and villages, and they charge visitors a small fee (from 5 to 20 tala) to swim, take photos on the beach, or even wander around the sand. If you’re staying at a resort, you won’t have to worry about this fee at all.


9. Don’t Visit the National Museum on Weekends
This museum should definitely be at the top of your itinerary, but make sure you stop by during the week, because they’re closed on weekends. You can send a special request to ask that they open their doors for you on a Saturday or Sunday, but there’s no guarantee that they’ll honor it.


10. Don’t Enter During Prayer
Prayer sessions can happen frequently, and if you find that you’ve arrived at someone’s home during a prayer, wait outside until it is finished. If you’re inside their home at the time the prayer’s set to take place, you’ll be expected to take part in the service as well.

SPEARFISHING PAST THE BREAKERS & CAN'T GET BACK TO SHORE | Stuck In a Rip Current | American Samoa

What was supposed to be a fun kid-free adventure, almost turned deadly.

Nate made it past the breakers through an ava (rip current) to go spearfishing, but between the huge swells and strong surges, he knew he needed to get back to shore.

Unfortunately, the ocean had other plans.

He ended up swimming more than a mile against the cross island current, until he could find a break in the waves enough to swim through, crawled over the sharp coral reef and hiked back to Camel's Rock.

Our great adventure turned into a terrible misadventure, but still, it could have been so much worse!

Lesson learned: Know your abilities, know your limitations, and trust your gut. The ocean is beautiful and fun, but it's also strong and dangerous. We love the ocean, but the ocean doesn't love us... It doesn't care whether we live or die. Treat it with respect and caution.

Thank you everyone for your love and support!
