Tosua literally means a Giant Swimming Hole. 30 meters deep and is accessible via a long ladder to the pool.Overlooking the ocean is a beach called Fagaoneone meaning white sand whereas opposite is a lava field with blow hole, tide pools and walking paths along the rocks near the ocean’s edge.

This is an experience many may never have. I absolutely recommend it. Can't take little kids down the steep ladder though and not good for someone with height phobia.

The ladder down to the water is treacherous and slippery. Water shoes would have really come in handy. The water is amazing. You can feel the water push and pull from the waves. Some guys were actually swimming through the tunnels to the ocean. I...More

To Sua Trench is insane. Mermaids must live here. The view of the rolling ocean from the surrounding fales is gorgeous and so peaceful, and the trench itself will take your breath away. The ladder IS steep and slippery, but not in the least bit...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.
