Beautiful place to swim, it would be nice to have had steps right down to swimming hole. My 4 year old was a bit scared but made it down and I (7 months pregnant) was comfortable with the large steps of the ladder but others were a bit scared to go down. Beautiful view, a bit pricey, especially the food/drinks... More

This is a wonderful garden of tropical plants and flowers and the trenches with caves and small lakes to swim in for those brave enough to descend the ladder. Worth the visit.

Be aware that there's a long, steep ladder to get you down into the trench. It looks fine in pictures, but it can be pretty intimidating if you aren't a fan of heights. It would be very difficult with small kids and you can't carry stuff down with you. Once there however, it's a great, cool, spot to explore out... More

Its is like something out of a movie. Has a sort of weird feel to it, but an amazing power as well. A story about forces of nature I guess where lava pushed its way into the ocean and the ending beauty of their current relationship. Something that you need to experience if you ever visit Samoa.

The serenity was amazing. We had a great time. Recommend it to everyone going to Samoa. Despite what some of the older brochures state, there are toilets and changing facilities.

This is one of the best things to do on this Island. I am terrified of heights but was able to get up and down the ladder without any problems. It is so beautiful espescially when you're swimming. The garden setting is so nice. There are fales where you can sit and have a picnic.
