It is a steep climb down for someone scared of heights, but I overcame the fear and had an incredible swim in the ocean trench. People comment on my photos of this place more than any where else in Samoa

Not as picturesque as the marketing photos make it out to be but a cool experience nonetheless. Can get quite tidal so check the best time to go. Very murky when we went but the kids loved the adventure of it!

Loved everything about it! The ladder is very sturdy and not slippery at all. Swimming in To Sua was on our bucket list and exceeded our expectations. Photos cannot do it justice.

This is the most beautiful spot in the world! Scary is the ladder climb down and up! It's approx 10 metres on the ladder, which is very sturdy and has great grip. If you fear heights it will take every ounce of your courage, but once in that water it is just magic. The water is tidal but a rope... More

This was a stunning place to visit. Not so great if you're scared of heights but perfectly safe and well worth the trip down the ladder. It's like being in another world! The clifftop gardens are beautiful and well cared for. Toilets and changing facilities available.
