Virgin Cove is about one hour drive from the International airport and we are happy to pick you up any time with our van for 80 Tala (for up to 3 guests).
From Apia we have a daily transport to Virgin Cove starting from the Tourist information fale in front of the Gouvernment building at 2 PM, price during Apr 01-Nov 30 is 15 Tala and during Dec 01 - Mar 31 is 10 Tala per person one way. If you like to find us yourself, you can go by car or bus to the South West side of the island and the village Saanapu.
You will find our Virgin Cove sign at the main road and from here you have about 5 km on a paved road through the village down to the beach (please note that the local bus stops at the main road). At the beach turn right and continue to the very end of the small and rather bumpy road. The last part is along the beach between the coconut trees. Isn't this a great beginning of your holiday in Paradise ?
