You may want to try this again and again once you've experienced the thrill of skimming the 16-foot waterfall down this natural rock slide.

One of the cheaper waterfalls to visit. It's super fun and unique. Worth going to see even if you don't want to slide. We had great fun sliding with a group of locals we met there. Very refreshing on a hot day!

Great fun sliding down the rocks and splashing in the cool pools. And the gardens/surrounds are lovely.

Beautiful drive up and amazing views. Bring a picnic lunch like we did and enjoy the views while you eat before heading down for a swim! If you’re unfit like me you may struggle a little coming back up the steps but well worth it!

I think its a thing to go see. Lots of steps to get to the bottom. I only did the "baby" rock slide and only once. My daughter and grandkids loved them

Worth the walk down and up the stairs, best to ask at the entrance on how fast the flow of water is. Went there once and there was barely a trickle of water going down the waterfall :) BUT, I would highly recommend for anyone...More

The waterfalls are about a 10 - 15 minute drive from Apia. It's about $5 SAT per person to access/swim at the waterfall. To get to the waterfall, you must descend down a steep set of stairs. Make sure you bring plenty of insect repellant,...More

Papaseea is located on a hillside, overlooking the island. You want to make sure to be respectful when visiting here or any place in Samoa for that matter. NOT to scream outrageously just out of respect for the family that owns the area. It's very...More

It's not a stupid question but is difficult to answer. You would have to keep a close eye on your child ( I'm not implying you don't) but it is a bit dodgy if the child wandered off to explore. There is a pool to the right... More

I went to samoa tourism website and it says it is open Mon to Sun. Also, on a side note Tu sua trench is also open on sundays as we went there on a Sunday. I hope this helps.
