The most awesome swimming hole I have ever seen. It was a bit scary going down the ladder but once I was down there it was awesome. The water was beautiful, crystal clear. If you are going to Samoa you have to go and visit this - To Sua Ocean Trench.

Beautiful gardens and incredible views. My wife and I visited today and loved it. We managed the ladder climb fine. There were a few loud Japanese tourists but apart from that it was stunning

Not recommended for young children due to access and risks involved. Also not recommended for those with a fear of heights. But those with a sense of adventure, well worth the effort, magical. If others can take care of children or those that don't feel up to the challenge, then the view down and the surrounds are still worth the... More

The To Sua Trench is something I will never forget for the rest of my life. Its something you see on discovery channel or videos on Facebook that you just never expect to see in real life. I wish I could describe to you how truly beautiful this place is. It is a must do for anyone travelling to Samoa!

Great gardens surround the whole area and it's a couple minutes walk from the car park. Try to find out the hours for high tide, however low tide is just as great. A little scary climbing down the ladder but it's worth the experience. Loved it!

Such an awesome activity to do, and well worth the 20 tala to do it! The garden is well maintained, its a little bit of a struggle for anyone who doesnt like heights to get up and down the ladder, but once you do, your thankful for it. Dont just stop at the trench, head down to the walkway to... More

This place is amazing, the ladder down is not much fun, but if you take your time once you get going it's not as bad as you think. A must do when in Samoa

They charge an outrageous $20WST for entry but it's still worth a visit if you pass. The gardens are well maintained and if you get a quiet moment, swimming in the trench is wonderful, the price just feels like a bit of a rip off

We were lucky to visit the trench on a quiet day. The trench and gardens here are beautiful. Do note that the way down into the trench is a very steep, wooden ladder. If you have any issues with heights, you will not make it all the way down!

To Sua was our top priority for attractions to see on Apolu. It was a 1.5hr scenic drive from Apia (and a little hard to find - the signage was easy to miss), it totally exceeded our expectations. We were fortunate with sunny weather and barely any other tourists. The grounds are one big well maintained garden, with scattered picnic... More
