Manono is about 3 miles off the west coast of Upolu and Apolima lies approximately near the middle of the strait. Nu'ulopa is a tiny rocky outcrop with palm trees and surrounded by a natural turtle habitat.
The main means of transport between the two large islands, passenger and vehicle ferries operated by the Samoa government, run through the strait between Mulifanua wharf on Upolu and Salelologa wharf on Savai'i.
The ferry crossing takes about 90-minutes.
