Tosua literally means a Giant Swimming Hole. 30 meters deep and is accessible via a long ladder to the pool.Overlooking the ocean is a beach called Fagaoneone meaning white sand whereas opposite is a lava field with blow hole, tide pools and walking paths along the rocks near the ocean’s edge.

To Sua is a must do in Samoa! It's absolutely beautiful swimming spot if you can brave the very long ladder.

We were all very impress by the trench. Lovely spot for a swim and some magical pictures. The price to visit is really reasonable too, which is always good!

It's easily accessible for children above 6, I reckon. Just have to be careful going down the wooden ladder, as it's a bit slippery.
