We drove past and stopped at the falls on the way to the other side of the island, the falls were pretty but hard to see across from the viewing area because of overgrown trees obscuring them from the car park.

These falls are not the biggest you will ever see, but they are very beautiful. We sat and just watched them for about 15 mins. They are almost hypnotic and very relaxing.

The view itself of the waterfall is beautiful ... too bad there is rubbish everywhere when you look down.

Beautiful view on the cross-island road. One of Samoa's highest falls. Sadly, you can't get down to it without crampons.

Would be really cool to see but the view is limited with trees and long grass at the lookout. I had to climb the railing to get a look.
