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.

Photos don't do it justice. Must see it to truly understand how amazing it is. Very untouched and not full of tourists and the water is extremely warm. 100% will revisit.

Ladder steep and a bit slippery but after the first few steps you get comfortable, just climb down once :-)
