All reviews rock pools swimming hole afraid of heights climb down low tide take your time bucket list salt water the cliff per person be careful natural beauty amazing experience grounds are beautiful entry fee great spot clear water
The hosts here are very nice and keep a keen eye on everyone. There are signs around the island directing you to the trench but the actual sign to the trench is quite small and easily missed.
There is a changing area and toilets as...More
We loved our visit here. The ladder was not as scarey, high or steep as I was imagining. Swimming was great fun. We were there at high tide and it got a little rough as it started to go down but the ropes were good....More
This was definitely one of the big highlights of our multi-week trip to the Samoan Archipelago. The entire area is meticulously well-maintained and landscaped! Everything from the large parking lot, to the multi-acre beautifully landscaped gardens above To Sua is impressive. The bluff above the...More
This beautiful place is a must do while in Samoa. Not only is the trench the most amazing sight the surrounding gardens and nearby coastal cliff and views are something else! Great facilities (toilets, showers, change room and a small shop) there on site and...More

We went with our very fit grand children and they really loved it I was to nervous to climb down the step ladder but really enjoyed watching them and loved the well cared for gardens well worth a visit.
You need to be able bodied to be able to go down to the water. It’s fantastic once you are down there. The ladder can be a bit sippery so you just need to be careful. Very refreshing water. You can purchase soft drinks there....More
The total area is well maintained with gardens.
View of sea is fantastic
Water in the hole is clean.
As one has to use steep wooden stairs, seniors to avoid swim in the hole in case you are not completely fit.

Two options only - from the wooden deck at the bottom - even there stay left if diving head first, diving straight ahead from the ladder and you risk scraping your nose on the (loose coral & seashell) bottom. There is a small ledge to plunge just by the top of the ladder but feet first only - they will touch the bottom as you’d expect if you dive from about 9m height into just 2m of water.

There are many options but the cheapest is to approach one of the employees at your resort and ask them if they know anyone that could be your driver for the day. We did this and it cost about a quarter of what our resort... More
There are many options but the cheapest is to approach one of the employees at your resort and ask them if they know anyone that could be your driver for the day. We did this and it cost about a quarter of what our resort was charging. Most of the staff share the same village so they know who has a van or car and would be able to take you. We paid about $40nz per person, there were five of us, for the day. The driver took us anywhere we wanted and waited for us to swim, snorkel or shop. Best day of our trip.
