This place can be a lot of fun, especially for older kids as they really are sliding rocks! Just be careful as things can get a bit slippery and just make sure of the depth of all the sliding rocks you go down.

It's a small fee to enter, that supposedly goes to the local village. It may seem like crazy, but you literally do slide down rocks that appear bumpy but are quite smooth. I went with a tour guide so he knew which rocks to slide down, but it is relatively easy to figure out.

Like much of the Samoa experience advertising, the sliding rocks did not meet expectation! The free pools in the National Park were far superior.

The sliding rocks are scenic and the pools nice to swim in however when I was there there was definitely not enough water to slide down! The rocks are rough and it was about one metre deep at the bottom. Take care!

A bit tricky to find.... Not great signage, but just up behind Apia township set in lovely gardens this is worth a visit. Steep climb down to rocks & even steeper coming up!!! Apparently not much water as usual, however, there was enough for my adult daughter & I to enjoy a few bumpy slides over the rocks. My legs... More

Great idea, but a bit unsafe for teens in dry seAson. Keep an eye on water levels. If it is shallow, people will graze their heads or backs. However, if you can figure out where the fresh water flows, and ride the waterfalls safely, it's really good fun. It's a long walk back up the 200+ steep steps to the... More

The sliding rocks were one of my kids favourite things to do while in Samoa. Not very well sign posted if you are driving yourself but locals are always happy to help with directions if you stop and ask.

Freshest water out! Visited with friends and cost 5 tala each (very reasonable) We were the only ones there and had an amazing time. Also keep your ears open as I heard voices of people laughing and talking in Samoan coming from the other side of the forest. It sounded like females. At first I thought it was the owners... More

One of the coolest things to do in Samoa. Make sure there has been some rain on the days prior otherwise it can get quite shallow. Seriously one of the coolest things our family has ever done!
