Where do you go to find perfect beaches?
For Martin Miranda and Manuela Zavala, Samoa is no doubt, the perfect choice of white sandy beaches, crystal blue ocean destination.
The pair from Argentina embarked on their trip searching for a perfect escape, and being first timers in Samoa, the more than 20 hours flight was all worth it at the end.
The Dear Tourist team met the couple taking in the cool sea breeze and sun tanning by the beach at Saletoga Sands Resort.
Curious as to why they would travel in search for nice beaches, Martin said: “Maybe because in our country, you can’t find something like this, a perfect beach.”
To them, it was perfect and Samoa offered them even more than what they expected.
“We love the beach. We came here for the beach and we love it,” Martin said.
“And we only went to Lalomanu, we liked that, the beach is beautiful. And there were a lot of trees, we like that too, it was really nice.
“We went by a motorbike we rented here in the hotel, we could see everything and we stopped wherever we wanted to.”
Their love for the ocean blossomed with Samoa’s crystal blue ocean.
“We’ve swum in the ocean, snorkelled and kayaked as well and we’ve loved it,” Martin said.
He said Samoa should not develop at a fast rate because it would affect people like him who travel for the sake of beauty in nature and Samoa was a scenic destination.
“The Samoan people are really nice too. We went to a lot of places in Samoa and they helped us, I think they’re very nice. The food is really good too,” he said when asked of the island hospitality.
The pair has bid their farewell, but something is for certain, despite the distance, they are sure to return for more.
