Fodor's 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.
