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.

A lovely spot and good fun sliding down the rocks - check out where you will land though. Can be a bit hard to find so get good directions

steep steps down through beautiful gardens to the rocks. By western standards it seems a little unsafe - sliding into pools with only a metre of water. However, there was plenty of water going over despite it being the dry season. My young kids had...More

The sliding rock is a nice spot to swim at if you're staying in Apia as it is very close. Water is cold which is perfect for a hot day. The only downside is the workout you get when you need to climb the 200...More

I enjoyed this but would recommend it's more suitable for people over 10yrs..steps all the way down and getting out of the pools can be tricky ie slippery rocks...wear reef shoes

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.
