Absolutely stunning, we had a sunny day so the water was bright blue and it was just unreal. Would definitely go here again

Trench has to be seen to be believed and its surrounded by lovely gardens and trees. You can rest in a fale and take in the majestic ocean views that take your breath away. This place has its own magic and you cannot leave Samoa without experiencing it.

I did live in Samoa for four years in the 1970's and made many friends there. I went to the trench often. I have not had the chance to return.

When I saw 'most beautiful natural swimming pools in the world" I knew this had to be on the list. We visited in 2008. There was nothing there but this stunning pool, I hope it is still untouched. We spent hours here, so few people, just breath taking. I felt so privileged to have been able to experience such beauty.

Beautiful setting and gardens. The climb down then back up the ladder is a little daunting but not so bad once you've done it.

To Sua is stunning! Even if you aren't too keen on getting down into the trench it's worth going to just have a look and also check out the beach from the cliff side.

Unfortunately for us it had been raining so when we visited the water was brown :-( particularly disappointing as we especially planned on staying at this end of the island to visit the trench. In saying that the gardens are beautiful and the scenery of the coast line is worth it for the visit too

Absolutely amazing, just natural beauty, teenage kids loved this and we spent a good time swimming, checking out the beautiful small fishes and enjoyed seeing the current flow through . My only recommendation made to the owners was for safety rails to be attached to the very steep ladder, as not good for those who are afraid of heights, but... More

On the south coast of Upolu, the ocean trench is a great experience, lying in the warm water, looking up at the sky frame by the trees and lip of the hole. Entrance cost is $20 SAT per adult. The ladder is very steep, and is about 20m high so you should take it very carefully, as it has no... More
