Very nice place to visit, but the $20 tala entry fee was quite steep for non swimmers? Not ideal for those afraid of heights, as stairs are steep and quite slippery when wet. There was'nt much else you can do but admire the views, have a walk around the nicely maintained gardens in the small compound and have a snooze... More

This unique attraction is well worth a visit, but don't expect to spend too long here. The novelty soon wears off. It only costs 20 tala for the entrance fee and gardens and park area are well kept and offer great views of the southern coast. Ideal for chilling, sunbathing or just enjoying the views. The actual attraction involves climbing... More

Love this cave full of sea water for swimming and enjoyment. Really good set up, tidy and well landscaped. Come and check it out when you are in the land of Paradise Samoa.

Great idea to add the rope to hold onto in the water, take lots of sun screen, insect repellent and photos :)

Although I am afraid of heights I told myself that jumping into To Sua would be a once in a lifetime experience..so I did it.. and I left there with no regrets. The water was clear and clean. It was an amazing experience.

Go for the jump into the trench and swim into the caves and caven. Better then climbing down the steps and ladder. Take a GoPro with you.

There is a VERY steep ladder with NO handrails and the sanded paint (to help stop slipping has worn off in many places). The entry fee is very high for Samoa and so the local owners should put some money into making this safer. Suggest you wear reef shoes to give you more grip on the ladder

Tosua is a giant natural swimming pool situated next to ocean. It’s an amazing experience to be there. Water in the hole comes and goes as per the ocean tides. Non swimmers should avoid going down though there is rope to hang on in case you just want to stay in water and not swim. It’s not very deep, mostly... More

This is a wonderful place with a clear salt water trench for swimming or lava rock pools for basking as the ocean pours into the pool with each wave at high tide. The surrounding gardens are beautiful and there is a shower where you can wash off the salt water and toilets. Don't miss this beautiful place.
