Really breathtaking, worth the stop on the road. You will need a sunny day to truly appreciate the view.

The day I visited it was had been raining earlier... The mist rose majestically from the river below shrouding the falls like a ghostly apparition...Very slowly the mist thinned to reveal the falls and quickly shrouded it again before I could get a good shot !! Bu it was really an eyeopener!! I am happy I visited.

We stopped at this site when we were travelling around the island...it is set in beautiful gardens and very relaxing time to spend admiring the view. The waterfall is spectacular and it is such wonderful natural wonder. Well worth the 5 Tala per person donation.

Ok for a quick stop if driving past but wouldn't make a special trip. The viewing point is actually not the best point to view, you need to go above to the left but be careful, don't fall, no fence here. Plenty of litter though. You can't really get close to the falls but they look nice on a clear... More

Dropped in to look at these falls which were flowing hard due to recent rain. Took a couple of pics but have seen similar in NZ so wasn't amazed by it. Definitely worth the fee though. Tours here would be better than dropping in yourself, as they also do coconut shows for those.

It is amazing but a bit of a dive out of Apia. Worth it though! It looks absolutely spectacular. Great for taking photos

If you are driving across the Island make sure you stop here. Lush green forest and long, long beautiful waterfall. Just don't wander away from the viewing point and fall in. You could stop off here and eat a packed lunch, as its in the middle of a longish trip.
