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 spent hours here. The sliding rocks are great fun, but they are just a part of the lager river system. This isn't bad though - it meant that we could go swimming and hiking down the rocks, exploring the river. Be careful when you're sliding down the rocks though, they can hurt!

There's an entry fee, and the stairs down to the slides are not greatly maintained, but you can... More

Great fun to slide down the rocks and into pools below. You can pick which ones to slide down, some are steeper than others.

Good fun to go and slide down the rocks or even to simply have a swim! Another beautiful location in Samoa that's worth the visit. Wet season the water is deeper and more water is running down the rocks making them more slippery. You can still slide down them in dry season, but the water is not as deep below... More

I love seeing the kids zooming down the sliding rocks on their feet lol. It's very refreshing and it's free! well it didn't cost much if it did cost anything.. It's one of those things you should do in Samoa and it's close to the town so you don't have to do much travelling if you're staying in Apia.

Papaseea sliding rocks are a short trip from the town centre of Apia and well worth seeing. There are three separate falls and you can swim under all of them with sliding rocks between two of them. The surrounding scenery is a genuine tropical paradise and with only two other people there at the time, it was liking having our... More

It is a really hardcase because the locals tell you that you have to use your instinct to get there.It just means it is not really sign... More

Simply beautiful! The water was lower the day we visited but it was still a lot of fun!! The climb back up is challenging rocks are wet and slippery. We definitely recommend!

We did not swim here, there wasn't enough water. It's a very steep walk down (and back) via concrete steps. I can imagine this place gets super busy in the season, but unfortunately the metal pipe handrail was broken in quite a few places, which made it a little un-nerving. Such a shame...why can't these be repaired?????

Fun time spent with friends sliding down time and again! There is a child slide, woman and man. I think we did all 3! Water is not too cold but just have to be careful going 1 at a time as the bottom of slide is not very deep.
