This is a brilliant place to visit. The pool is an amazing experience suited to most people but if climbing down the ladder is not for you then the lovely outlook and fales overlooking the sea should be enough to draw you there. There are also lava fields on the waterline a short walk away and are with the visit... More

A great experience seeing as this is well marketed in any advertising of Samoa. Make sure you wear shoes down the steps as they are hard on your feet.

Too beautiful, I can't even... Come at around 8:30AM or 5PM, if you're lucky you'll have this place all to yourself. Best photographs are taken on sunny days.

A lovely place to visit, the climb down the ladder a bit hair raising especially if you don't like heights. A wonderful pool awaits you at the bottom of the ladder. Arlene Hutcheon

Situated in lovely gardens this is a must visit attraction. Even if you don't go down to the bottom it is worth a look. The coast line is rugged and there are a few viewing places

Terrific naural beauty. Must visit while in Samoa. BUt there should be more consideration on safety. No rails to hold on the steps. Dont forget to check the blow holes nearby.

The most amazing place to visit! Try to go at low tide, the current that comes with High tide is far too strong for children. The view is absolutely beautiful

Amazing experience. The ladder is steep but taken slowly is achievable. Found at end of day quite quiet. 20 tala to get in. Leave bits in the car. Rock pools and view fantastic.

Scary but amazing. Need to be reasonable fitness to achieve the climb down and then up the big ladder.

'The trench' as my travel buddy called it, is fantastic. We went twice, once in the afternoon, and once in the morning. In the morning we had it all to ourselves for a while, but it started filling up by about 11am or so. The water is so warm, I'd recommend morning for the tranquility. The open trench is beautiful...
