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

A great day and the colours of the bush and trees around it were outstanding. There wasnt a lot of water when we went but still lovely. The railings should be fixed however to make it just a bit more tourist friendly

We went to the Sliding Rock and climbed down the stairs to see if there was enough water, unfortuantly there was not enough. We were with local family so they did not pay to climb down the stairs but the lady in charge was upset at us for not paying to view the rocks. The lady will always tell you... More

We had heard from friends that this attraction is worth doing but too grotty to swim in so we went to watch others. As other reviewers have noted this is really hard to find so go on a tour or allow plenty of time to find it. Street signs and attraction signs are not usual. We arrived after a few... More

Went beginning of November but not enough water on the rocks to actually slide properly. Some of our group got injured by landing on rocks below. Need to go when there's more water!
