I found all of Samoa lovely, laid back and friendly. These falls are magnificent for swimming in the river below or just taking in the view and peaceful atmosphere. A great place to meditate

This waterfal is literally just off the road. Use the samoa app, it is easy to find. Well worth a look.

These falls have an impressive drop but is not easy to spot the viewing point on the Cross Island Road. Other falls are more impressive because you can get closer

Did this as part of a day trip and spent a couple of hours there. It's quite small, but still fun. A nice little place to bring a picnic and spend a few hours.

Very easily accessible and spectacular falls that make for a good photo opportunity. There is no cost unlike the other waterfalls.

We were shown these falls during a day trip and didn't expect to see anything quite as stunning in pretty much the middle of nowhere.

Interestingly, there are two waterfalls on the cross Island roads. This one is drive up and view or you can walk to the top of the falls if you have someone who can show you. If you are a total adventurer nutto you can... More
