Very beautiful to view & for a swim
Oct. 2019 • Couples
Outstandingly beautiful and a couple of places for swimming beneath waterfalls. You could happily spend half a day here with a picnic. The larger waterfall is very powerful.

Refreshing!

Beautiful waterfalls and a nice spot to have a swim. The water was not too cold, and was refreshing on a hot day.

Amazing, best attraction in Savai’i
Oct. 2019 • Couples
An extremely reasonable fee of 5wst per person is to be paid to the gentleman in the fale on the road up to the waterfall. When we arrived, nobody else was there and we had the whole place to ourself. It’s a beautiful waterfall that you can swim right up to and the stream down the side of the walkway is also picturesque. There are two places you can jump from, one not so high and one towards the top of the waterfall for those that are brave. So good we almost returned the next day.

Highly recommend!

Amazing swim, found the waterfall easily off the main road maybe ~30mins drive from the wharf.

There are 3 tiers to swim in, we went to the furtherest, which was only about 200m from the Carpark and we had that tier all to ourselves.

The walk is very easy, I managed in jandals and holding an 8month baby. Was also fine taking a baby in and accessing the waterfall, as the art tier had steps carved out and a rope for extra support. The toilets are clean and there are picnic tables for lunch. No where there to buy food.

The water was very clear and cooled us down instantly, if you’ve only got time for 1 attraction in Savaii, I would highly recommend the waterfall.

This was one of our favorite waterfalls. There are a few tiers and you can swim. The water is clear. There's also toilets and a shower. 5 tala entry. Very short walk to the falls. Definitely recommended.

Waterfalls of Tranquility
Aug. 2019
Very well set up at the falls. The road, pathways and parking are all up to a good standard and the area is well looked after it cost $5 tala per-person. It’s a short 2 minute walk up to the waterfall you can swim here if you want but remember there are no life savers be mindful with small children the flow of the water is fast. But so peaceful and it is lovely you can spend 10 minutes and be out or ages it’s your choice. Toilets and changing rooms here once again take your own toilet paper as none provided.

Priceless & at only 5 Tala give more!!
Jul. 2019 • Family
One of the most beautiful places in Samoa. There has been an amazing amount of work done over the last year to beautify the falls and create easy access for visitors. Please keep this piece of Paradise beautiful. Aqua therapy from the smaller falls is wonderful. Only 5Tala - give more to support the locals

Our favourite stop in Samoa
May 2019 • Friends
This is a must-see if you can. Some tips: 1) The falls are not always open. We learned they had been closed for an extended period on arrival in Samoa and didn’t expect we could visit. A stroke of luck saw them open our last day in Savaii which meant we not only could take them in, but were the only ones there! So, if you hear/find them closed, keep trying. 2) Access is well signed from the Island road. And access up to the parking lot is on a dirt road that is accessible in a low clearance car. You don’t need 4WD, at least at the time of this writing. 3) Intense rain can make the water cloudy but it cleared up quickly in our experience. For example the river water was brown the afternoon prior, but clear by early afternoon the next day. 4) The prawns nibble. But no sign of eels! 5) The site has recently gone through improvements to the toilets and trails. Both are in great shape. It does look prone to erosion and washouts, however.
