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.

We really enjoyed visiting Papaseea Sliding Rock. Well worth trek through bush if there has been rain. If it's dry it's not so much fun. It's good to see over Father Time it is still the same as 20 years ago. Well done Samoa. Makes you feel like a young child again.

This would be the second time I've been here and it's still as beautiful as it was 15 years ago! Its a steep walk down to the sliding rocks but its the picturesque surrounds that makes it a lovely place to enjoy.

Great if there has been rain but can get rather full, particularly with locals trying to make some tourist 'friends'. If there's been no rain it will be dry and not worth the hike down the hill. For the active and adventurous only.

It was a lovely experience. My kids had a ball. Maybe it would've been more exciting if it was a lot more water or rain.

Had a lot of fun here, was really nerve racking so didn't slide off many rocks but still was a lot of fun!

The grounds around the rocks are cool, and the walk in from the parking lot was very easy. However, we decided not actually do the sliding as we determined that there wasn't enough water to facilitate the slideness required.

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
