Where to Get Free WiFi in Samoa
Samoa might be a destination to disconnect, but if you have to keep on top of work emails or need to keep in touch with people back home then you’ll probably like access to free WiFi. Admittedly, free WiFi isn’t readily available in Samoa. Between the odd cafe and a handful of accommodations offering free WiFi, however, you can just about make a “free internet” holiday work. Just check out our list of places to get free WiFi in Samoa.
1. Cornwall Cafe
Cafes with free WiFi are pretty standard in most developed countries but Cornwall Cafe is Apia’s only answer when it comes to having access to WiFi along with your morning coffee (or evening beverage, as the case may be on a Thursday and Friday when the bar is open). Delight in tropical smoothies, pancakes and popcorn chicken, as well as a space to browse the web at this cool rooftop cafe. For more cafes to discover, check out the 10 Best Cafes in Samoa.
