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

Beautiful even if u don't go on the slides. Lots to explore, the main area, then climb down to the main slides. U can climb right down to the bottom & get some awesome photos of all the falls, rockpools, rock formations. Or climb up from main area. I'm fairly unfit with 3bulged disks in my spine & was carrying... More

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.
