Papase'ea Sliding Rocks

Papase'ea Sliding Rocks Review

If you like sliding down big rocks on your backside and splashing into refreshing waterholes, this is the place to go. Set in an absolutely beautiful garden, about a 15-minute drive southwest and inland from Apia, it's a great place for families—especially teenagers. There's a long, 100-step walk down to the rockpools, past lovely waterfalls and foliage. If you don't like slipping and sliding (there are three levels of natural water slides—the highest is about a 5-meter, 16-foot, drop), simply have a refreshing dip and enjoy a packed picnic lunch. It's best to leave your valuables in your locked car, or there's the quaint option of paying the Women's Committee a small fee to mind your belongings. It's a good idea to bring reef shoes. Basic toilets and a changing room are near the parking area.
