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.

This was a bit of an adventure, a good climb down to the actual waterfalls but well worth the walk. The kids and big kids had a wonderful time while I watched and took photos from a nearby rock, I did eventually have a dip in the water as it was so hot.

I wish there was more water when we went. Aside from that, it was so much fun sliding down the rocks! There are a lot of pools for hanging out for those who are a bit more cautious. Make sure to bring down everything you want to have for your time there, because going up and down those stairs can... More

We couldnt work out how to slide down these rocks and thought it looked a bit dangerous but swimming in the pools at the bottom of the falls was amazing. Such a beautifully clean and refreshing swim.

Awesome and fun experience. The week before we went it had rained a lot which meant there was enough water flow to be able to have a decent slide. For those of us like me who has injuries there were still options to enjoy the water. Some of the railings were a bit dodgy and could do with repair but... More

Fun in refreshingly cool water only 10 mins from Apia. After a while unsure where exactly to slide, some locals turned up and we followed their lead. Fun for all including my 6 and 8 year olds on the lower slide. I was in the lower pool to grab them.

Make sure you are really cool by the time you travel the stairs back up. Not for the faint hearted, I could see if the water was not flowing. This could really hurt.

We had a great time at the sliding rocks. It cost 10 tala per person and we got there 45min before the closing time of 5:30pm. We would recommend around an hour to get the most of the area. From the car park there is a nice view out to Apia from a pretty garden area. The toilet facilities near... More

We were here in Oct 2015 and the location is beautiful and we happily trekked down to see the rocks. They did tell us they were not working and there was no swimming so they are very honest. We got the idea of how it would work just walking down and the gardens and location are quite pretty. I can... More

We had a great time here - sitting under the waterfall gives you the most impressive neck and shoulder massage LOL Others had fun going down the sliding rocks - just be careful to NOT lie on your back as one lady did as she gave herself a nasty gash on the head. Most people would be sensible though and... More

long walk down to find no water, they need lots of rain for this sliding rock. Would be lovely if the water was flowing
