Apolima seen from the Upolu-Savai'i ferry
Apolima is a rim of an extinct volcanic crater with a maximum height of 165 m. It is a little less than one square kilometer in size and the only access to the island is by boat.
The tiny island lies 2.4 kilometres (1.5 mi) northwest off the westernmost edge of Upolu's fringing barrier reef and 7 km (4 mi) southwest of Savai'i island. The island's appearance is of an upturned bowl with surrounding steep cliffs and a broad opening to the sea on the northern side which is the main entry point by boat.
