Stopped off on our way to Lalumano and so glad that we did! Sea views are breathtaking and the trench itself is a sight to behold. Muster up the courage to climb down and swim - you won't regret it!

An absolute must do in Samoa. A nice drive across the Island from Apia, set in nice gardens. The teenagers loved it as did we. Take a waterproof camera.
