The waterfalls are hard to find coming from Apia if it is raining, as the sign only faces one way. The views are gorgeous.

A must see!. Only a short drive through beautiful rainforest and mountains to a spectacular drop. be careful as the site is not fenced and is slippery.

Great place to picnic. Often no other people, you can swim at the base of the falls, beautiful hiking along the river

Well for local the view is great but at the present it is very dangerous and untidy, need to have proper fencing for the outlook most likely you get carry away with the view before you know it your gone off the cliff and should consider a guard there at night.

Once you get to the falls, it was nice. But, the place was not kept really good. Everything was falling apart. Didn't go swimming because the grass was so over grown you couldn't even get to the water, was affraid to walk on the grass because couldn't see what was under neath it. Evenstill, I was just glad to see... More
