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.

We went as a family to the sliding rocks but the older family members found the very steep climb down and up, a little bit hard. So, apart from that it was fantastic, the surrounding forest was wonderful and there was enough water flowing to...More

We spent an hour here and our children slid down the rocks over and over and over during that time and enjoyed every minute. The water in the pools gets low during the dry season so be sure to ask the locals if the pools...More

Great place to cool off and have fun as long as the water level is high enough. Our 16 yr old had fun while we wallowed in the cool pools.

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.
