Even if you don't go into the actual To Sua Ocean Trench it's worth paying just to go in and look around, the gardens and ocean views are amazing!

Such a stunning swimming hole. The drive from town is around 90 minutes but totally worth it. It's costs from memory around 20 tala to go in and you pay before you enter. There are toilets, changing rooms and an outdoor shower and the grounds...More
