You may want to try this again and again once you've experienced the thrill of skimming the 16-foot waterfall down this natural rock slide.

T$5 entry, good parking, and changing rooms/ toilets. I only did the small slide but got a great bruise to show off; sorry the photo doesn’t do it justice. If you are not into self-harming, you can enjoy just sitting in the pools or have a shower under the waterfall.

and we absolutely loved it. The walk down was scary...but that's because I am naturally very clumsy. The walk back up was a good workout for the calves. I had my boyfriend walk behind me to make sure he catches me if I fall backwards! The water was cool and absolutely beautiful. It would have been nice with a vailima!

My husband loved this I was not gain to do it. Lots of steps to the rocks but worth the walk down just to see the fun everybody has. Defiantly put on your list we had a driver so knew where we were going and it's better to have a local with you

Sliding rock is only a few minutes drive from Apia. It costs about $5 US. I did not know what to expect... I paid my entrance fee at the parking lot and then took the stairs down to the stream... A lot of stairs! I arrived to find two Samoan boys in the pool below the rock.. One of them... More

Apart from seeing worms in the water, it was very good. I did not slide on the rocks as it looked a bit dodgy and again, as i've said in my previous reviews, it is swim at your own risk. There were a couple of people doing the slide and it was fun to watch while relaxing at the bottom.... More

We spend a couple of hours here sliding down the rocks. It was great fun and a lovely spot. Probably the one of the highlights of the trip for my teenage son.

I have a bad back so probably not the best for me. Good fun although there are better places to visit in Samoa. Make sure you ask if there is water in the pool, otherwise you will pay for nothing. The locals won't volunteer this but don't hesitate to ask.

We went as a group and had a lot of fun, not everyone went sliding l did and loved it...best in the wet season so there is more water. The steps are a killer but we all managed and we were all over 60!
