Accessible and reasonably priced

This was one natural attraction that you could actually access easily by vehicle and not have to pay multiple entry fees. The waterfall fell into a pool that was cool and inviting.

One of the last things we did before leaving Savai'i and was a great attraction to conclude our trip. Had a nice relaxing swim and it was fun to see the locals optimize the place, doing fun jumps from different places. Really beautiful place and may parts you can choose to swim in.

Enjoyed swimming in this beautiful place in Savaii. The pool is very deep from the waterfall side and you can easily jump in from the surrounding cliffs.

It's not super easy to find and it's nothing fancy when looking at the toilets or the parking, but the pond and falls itself were amazing. A real treat to get in there for a swim. I

We had this on our to visit list only if we had time, having just returned we were glad that time was on our side! The water was Chrystal clear and so refreshing that a swim is a must, the rock ledges are a great platform but be careful as we did see someone have a bit of a spill!... More

We were told to visit here first thing in the morning & following that advice, we had the place pretty much to ourselves, except for he giant excavator further down stream begging up all the river rocks & turning the water muddy. The water is refreshingly cool and we enjoyed spending a couple of hours here swimming & exploring. Water... More

Rainy day but we went regardless. Pretty bumpy to the end where the upper waterfall is. We swam in the lower pool. Cold..about 68-70F or 16-18C (at least I think that is cold). But I went in. Nice as everything is so warm in Samoa. I think we paid 5T. cheap and worth the swim!

The waterfall is beautiful! I would definitely recommend this place. There is a cliff you can jump off into the water which was so much fun
