Loved this place. Its a must do when visiting Samoa. The trench is beautiful and the sea views are breathtaking. Will definitely visit the To Sua again when on holiday in Samoa.

This is an awesome little Gem in Samoa and definitely one of the best we visited! Although it was fairly busy when we were here (and it was the low season) we still managed to spend a lot of time in the trench swimming around and jumping off the platform.

I have to say this place is pretty cool, not everyday you get to jump into a trench. the gardens in the area are very beautiful also. make sure you walk to the rock pools. If your in this area of the island its a must!!!

The photos of To Sua you searched on the Internet are correct. Exactly what I saw at To sua Ocean Trench. Water was warm, view was Awesome. Just a shame the ticket price raise to 20 for an adult, and I didn't notice by the information. But I still feel it's a must go of Upolu.

Well worth to effort....must take an experience guide if you can to swim through the lava tunnel. There is lots to explore and the gardens are beautiful.

The trench itself is absolutely stunning. The grounds well maintained and staff very friendly. The trench is so pretty that I personally think there is no need for the ' colour touch ups' on the tourist brochures which feature it.

So glad our taxi driver stopped to take us here, what a blast had by all 3 of us! The water was clear and clean, the gardens were tidy and beautiful and we got to see wild lizards running around. We went early morning so there were no other tourists and got to enjoy swimming around on our own. The... More

Beautiful but terrifying descent into pool! Exciting!! Not for the folks with a fear of heights!!! The ladder is sturdy but slippery. Go barefoot. It is in a village so ladies are encouraged to wear clothes to the ladder and then may strip down to swim suits when you start your descent.

Great afternoon spent at To Sua Trench. Lovely and relaxing, clear waters, swim through to another cave.. Gorgeous location too, we spent some time at the top of the trench which is on a cliff in some gardens overlooking the coast and ocean. Only problem was the group of guys (tourists) who arrived and were noisy, splashing and dive bombing...... More

We had to go seeing that it was only 10 minutes from the Aga Reef Resort. $20/person to get in. Due to my fear of heights I could not make it down to the waterhole but my husband did and was the ONLY person swimming in this amazing hole (how lucky). If we stayed in Apia - would I drive... More
