Lots of fun

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!

Water was cool and very inviting! If you're not into sliding on the rocks, you can just enjoy a dip in the very refreshing water. Safe enough to laze around. Best to be there when there's not a lot of people so you can relax and enjoy the surroundings.

We went to the Sliding Rock last month, my wife and I were the only ones there for 1-2 hours, had the whole area to ourselves. Was quite romantic and the sliding rock itself is very fun. Nice spot to hang out in the pools and cool off from the hot weather. Definitely recommended.

Had lots of fun at the sliding rocks. The water was refreshing and the surroundings are beautiful. Get ready for lots of stairs but its worth the trip down to the rocks. we were the only people there the day we went and just soaked in a day of fun

Haha, this one defeated me. Being active and mind-young I was really looking forward to this one but the day we visited it was deserted and with nobody around to show us the ropes, it was daunting. Some of the rocks slides looked very dangerous and we didn't want to jeopardise our holiday by breaking a limb. I did try... More

We visited the sliding rocks on a rainy day which was great! The water flow looked a bit scarier than in the pics we had seen but it was so much fun actually.. There are quite a lot of stairs to get down to the river however, which wasnt great in the rain, and my calves/thighs ached the next day..... More

The sliding rocks were really exhilarating to go down, and heaps of fun. There are pools of cool water holes around the slippery rocks. It's a little hard to get down near the bottom of the slippery rocks as the dry rocks around it are very steep and kind of hard to navigate. Wear longer shorts and t-shirts as it... More
