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.

10 mins drive from Apia but not well signed as we drove straight past. Bit of a hike down and up but nothing too distressing. I thought it would be a lot smoother. But lots of jagged edges. And the pools at the bottom pretty...More

Definitely should visit the sliding rocks, my 2 year old slid down two of them. The water is nice and cool, my kids didn't want to leave.

Lovely place to visit and very pretty. We went in dry season so not a lot of water so didn't do any sliding. Still a great place to visit and cool off.

Great local attraction - low cost at $2.50 per child and $10 per adult. Steps down and up are hefty but there's no traffic as such so take your time and you'll be fine. Seasons will effect how much fun is to be had -...More

We were very disappointed with the sliding rocks - in the dry season, part of the rocks were sand bagged to corral the water to fall. A number of tourists were there - only 2 tried. Too little water for a very bumpy ride into...More

Invest in a pair of reef shoes for both the decent to and the sliding rocks for safety sake. It hadn't rained much when we went And therefore one of the slides was not open. Having said this the water was crystal and refreshing. Don't...More

Best done with a guide so that you go down in the right places. There isn't anyone at the rocks, so I would take a tour to do it. A lot of stairs and a bit of climbing. For the young and fit. It was...More

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.
