$2 Dollar Beach is a nice place to go. I spent a lot of time there when I lived in Avaio, Tutuila.
Every time Samoa has a hurricane, (expect it every 10 years! ) it blows the coconut palms down. The right side is lined with short palms. Maybe they are 5 years old and have some coconuts.
They are sure easier to climb when they are short!
From one angle it looks like Pyramid Rock as Ian called it, from the other side it looks like a seated lion.
However, it had no Samoan name when I was there.
It is one of the few nice spots tourists can come and for a fee enjoy going local. All beaches are private in Samoa.
I spent many a Sunday afternoon under the palm shade listening to the wind rattle the fronds and the waves pound on the coral reef. Time really stands still.
