The Paula cave pools were a highlight of our trip. They were crystal clear you could see all the fish swimming around. It was pretty quiet only a few guests so we had most of the pool to ourselves! Highly recommend!!

Crystal clear waters forming a pool with a cave as a backdrop. Closed on Sundays as it is run by a church.

This is definitely one refreshing patch of water. Once you get used to the cold water, dip your head under and you will see all kinds of fish swimming around you. Head into the cave itself and turn around and you will see some of...More

You must stop here for a refreshing swim when on Upolu. It's an amazing hidden treasure. The $5 WST/person to enter is well worth it!

Just opposite the sea are caves below the church building. Soft water ,crystal clear and good swim. Garden toilets a great concept. The area is scenic and great place for swim and picnic with many fakes and lovely garden.

On a drive around the island we stopped here for a swim. Cool and crystal clear water. Beautifully refreshing. A great spot for a picnic lunch. Like most "tourist" spots around the island, this is on private land, so expect to pay a small fee....More

Unusual spot but worth the visit. The pool is surrounded by concrete but the actual pool is natural and surprising even had fish in it.

This is a stunning spot. The water is freezing cold but at the same time very refreshing in rhe Samoan heat. It's lovely to swim in fresh water rather than the sea or chlorinated pool water. The fish aren't as beautiful as tropical salt-water fish...More
