Just to say you did it is a good reason to go. It IS fun. Just do it. A great outlook over the city and the jungle-like valley.

This is a fun thing to do in Samoa. Nice fresh water, and varying Rocks to slide down. Well worth doing if you go.

We have been to Samoa many times and every visit we go to sliding rocks it is so refreshing in the heat and we enjoy the peace and serenity of this area even thought the walk back up the steep stairs is not for the faint hearted but dont miss this place to be refreshed from the heat, pack a...

Set in a steep valley 10 mins from city centre, these falls are a must see. Steep, stepped valley down to the falls. Wear old clothes if planning to slide down the rocks! Beautiful location and a well run tourist spot. Toilets and taxis available.

You travel super fast down these rocks and it can be a little scary but is a pretty fun way to spend a couple of hours and you can always sit in the pools and chill. Slight danger aspect if water levels are low, I was expecting much deeper plunge pools... Also don't wear your best togs, they get green... More

Well we all... More

A great trip out of town for a few hours. The water was a little chilly but warmer than expected considering it's an often shaded river. The walk down to the slides was fairly step and the slides are more than a little daunting so probably not a great attraction for young children. We wore old sneakers and would recommend... More

Worth a visit. Was quite fun to slide down the rocks. Just be careful as you pretty much have to use your own judgement about safety and whether the water levels are high enough. My partner ended up with a bruised tail bone on his last slide which made for a very uncomfortable flight home.

I'm a bit of a wimp so went down the middle one and then got stuck as too scared to go further so my husband had to help me out. He did it fine of course including the upper big one. Lots of fun overall and worth going too if you like a thrill. Note: lots of stairs to get... More
