A beautiful trench. A bit pricey with the entrance fee taking us back 20 tala per person, but as it's one of the few famous attractions in samoa, it's worth doing. We went when it was raining so the ladder was quite slippery and almost...More

This place is set in a beautiful manicured tropical park and is a relaxing place to spend for a few hours. We walked straight to the trench and took on the steep long ladder walk down in to it. We had a swim around and...More

Road is signed but sign is not huge so make sure you look out for it. Bring 20 tala / person. Plenty of places to put your belongings when you go in for a dip. Ladder looks steeper than it is but we didn't go...More

A visit to the trench is something unusual which you will only do perhaps once in a lifetime. My wife and I are near 70's and found the climb down the wooden ladder quite challenging. A slow and steady descent led to an exciting swim...More

It's easily accessible for children above 6, I reckon. Just have to be careful going down the wooden ladder, as it's a bit slippery.
