Was good to go see but the stairs on the way back up were a killer and since we had drunk all our water at the bottom, were looking forward to a bottle once we got back to the top. Very surprised no shop or bottled water facilities here.

Luckily we had GPS otherwise I imagine this may have been a little tricky to find - get directions before you go! Well worth the short drive from Apia and the 5 Tala (per person) entrance fee. The stairs down to the stream and the sliding rocks are steep but it's only a five minute walk down. At first I... More

Lots of stairs, not enough slide. I didn't mind though as it was only 5tala. Being 7 months pregnant, it was a bit harsh on the hips.

It's was wet, but crowded, small and not particularly safe. A big hike up the hill makes your all sweaty

Can't remember how much it costs for entry, but the small amount of tala they charge for entry to the sliding rocks area is more than worth it! It's definitely only accessible for people who are able to climb ~ 50 steep stairs. The rocks are covered in moss and you slide down them into pools of water at the... More

You really need to go here when there has been a bit of rain. This was so much fun - using rocks as slides! You can really pick up speed too. Provided us with quite a bit of entertainment. Can be a little hard to find - so make sure you have a reliable map or use a taxi. Friendly... More

On the day that we went their hadn't very much rain fall so the water wasn't very high making some of the sides unsafe to go down. We still had a lot of fun. If you don't mind walk up and down steep stairs.

We went at the time of the year when the water levels are at their lowest so it would probably be different at other times but the climb down the stairs and back up again just to get to the rocks left everyone with sore muscles for days. The rocks are extremely slippery and climbing back up with no ropes... More

Beautiful settings for waterfalls, just be prepared for a mountain of stairs! Very steep but worth the look! Make sure you go in the rainy season?

Situation just outside of Apia, only about ten minutes away. View is fabulous and the welcome is great. Built beautifully with fales outside for picnic-kers. A payment of just WST5 per person (@2.50AUD), and a short walk down staircases (about 5-10mins) brings you to a number of pools. We were there before the rains had come, so there was not... More
