Photos don't do this beautiful pool justice. Be brave and make sure you go down the ladder into the water. Drift backwards and forward with the tide. Check out the cave and surrounding vegetation. The water is clear and refreshing. The surrounding gardens are lovely here too as is the view along the rugged looking coast.

To Sua is a swimming hole 30m deep in the ground, with crystalline blue waters. The ladder to come down is very steep but it is worth it.

this is Samoa's most interesting swimming spot for sure. Be very careful its very steep and the ladder entry into the hole is quite an undertaking to get down into the water. Very beautiful area and recommend you visit here - cost $ 20 tala

This as the hole island is very beautiful. This is a great place to take a swim, cool off, nice garden, short walking trails down to the shore and great view of the ocean. There is a very steep ladder with rungs that have pretty good gap (as in large) in and out those that are afraid of heights or... More

My family and I visited this gorgeous spot on the 4th of November 2014. It was absolutely gorgeous. While I was a little 'nervous' as I got to the ladder, it was so stable and felt very safe. I would recommend this to anyone heading to Samoa. The water was fabulous - floating on my back - looking up at... More

Great South Pacific spot for r & r. For something really special it is truly worthwhile. Agree with others as a little bravery is required to climb down those steps.

Breath taking. You have to be there to appreciate how magical this place is. The water was crystal clear. The surroundings were beautiful.

We visited the To Sua Ocean Trench on Sunday 2nd November. Absolutely stunning, the ladder down was steep, but myself, my partner and 11 year old daughter all felt safe enough. Definately something off my to do list. :)

Not just a swimming hole. A test of bravery, great gardens and other sights to see. Signage at the road made it a little tough to spot, we'd gone past it the day before.
