We were very much looking forward to experiencing the wonder of the trench when we visited Upolo. It was practically no.1 on the list, after the sea turtles of course! After we paid our money (the most expensive of all the attractions at $15tala each) we walked with eager anticipation down to the hole only to find that the current... More

This was the most amazing place to visit. I would recommend taking snorkelling gear into the Trench. At low tide you can swim underwater into a cave system that then carries through out into the ocean. You should only do this at low tide though. At high tide I hear that it can be a little rough in the trench.... More

Total trip highlight - go early if you can, and at high tide. It is seriously, exactly like the pictures you've seen!

Amazing views before you even get to see the trench. Once I got to the trench I had to take a few minutes to pluck up the courage to climb the stairs down, but once I was on my way there was no looking back. We spent a good few hours swimming in the beautiful picturesque water and enjoying the... More

This attraction is like a breath of fresh air. Well worth a visit. We loved the views and the trench. What impressed us most was how clean and tidy the whole area was, it was immaculate!. The fales and toilets were in clean working order, this is not the case generally in Samoa. We would visit again, you can spend... More

Can't leave Samoa without at least one visit to the Trench. Wish we had had made another opportunity. Perfect spot, had all to ourselves for most of the time there

Such a peaceful and beautiful place. If you go to Samoa, you must go to this place. The nature is just amazing.

The boys and I enjoyed the rockpools and spent a long time swimming in them. Phil was more adventurous and climbed the ladder down to the trench. The gardens are immaculate. A great picnic spot if you take your own food.

Excellent scenic spot to visit while in Apia. You can take a bus or taxi out to enjoy the swimming hole if you are fit enough to climb up and down the ladder. The water is crystal clear but tidal as the cave allows to swim through and come up in the ocean which is dangerous at high tide. There... More
