This blew us both away. Absolutely stunning swimming hole and we could have spent hours here if we weren't on a bit of a time limit. Only warning is to be very careful on the ladder. If you do nothing else, go here.

The ladder is steep so watch your descent but the experience is thrilling! The water is tidal so it's definitely not for those that can't swim. The fee is WS$15 for adults and there is a shop for drinks.

This is a stunning natural formation, and has beautiful gardens if the thought of climbing down doesn't appeal to you. I would recommend wearing rock shoes or sandals to climb up and down.

This ancient collapsed lava tube swimming hole was remarkable. About a 40 foot sturdy ladder has been built to reach it or if you are brave, you can jump from a ledge! The surrounding park like grounds are gorgeous as are the cliffside ocean views and blow hole. A must see/do when on Upolo island.

Loved the trench at both high tide and low tide. Make sure if you decide to jump you do so at high tide. Bring your snorkel gear see tons of species of fish in the main pool or explore some of the caves as well..Whats there to not like this place is pristine great view catch a sunset and relax... More

Beautiful manicured grounds with lots or tropical plant species. Climb down the ladder and swim in the trench. Also check out the blow holes at high tide

Must see destination. Was surprised at $15 tala entry fee but so worth it when your surrounded by clean, well-kept grounds and picturesque views. There is a restraunt onsite, open tuesday to friday. There are clean toilets and an outdoor shower. You also get to use one of the many mini samoan fales to relax in. Make sure you take... More

This was one of the reasons we choose Samoa for a holiday. Very picturesque, cool water. Also a great place to have a picnic lunch.
