You have to to visit Palolo Deep. A must see. When you get to the beach, swim towards the stick the is situated just to the left. It looks a long way but there is coral on the way and is mostly at a depth that you can stand (given reef shoes/flippers)- be mindful not to stand on the fragile coral. When the pass the stick, keep swimming out and you will come to a coral wall. One of the very few places in the world that you don't need to scuba dive to see a coral wall. You can put you belongings behind the front desk. The ladies are always very kind and helpful.

Great spot to snorkel. I think it was 5 Thala each to get in. They have toilets and change rooms for your use also. The main snorkelling area is about 100 m off the rocks and if its an incoming tide it can be a bit of a current to get out. I would also do it at high tide as otherwise you would have to swim your way around the coral and could get hurt at low tide.

For the price they charge, the changing room, lavatory and other amenities provide are more than what we asked for. The dive itself is divine. Everyone should snorkel here.

Beautiful little spot for snorkelling and swimming. Nice to get some beach time in heart of Apia. Walking distance from Sheraton Apia. Lots of fales to put stuff in, bench seats and tree swings. All in the shade. Outdoor shower and change rooms also available. $5 tala entrance fee and well worth it. We couldn’t see much snorkelling but that was because it was a strong current. You need to go in high tide. Lovely spot.

We have been before years ago and visited again in June this year and were pleased we did. If you are at all keen to snorkel you should definitely head out here. It's a small fee but worthy of the cost and to be fair how extraordinary to be able to visit a lovely little snorkelling spot in a major city. Check tides before you arrive and try and go on a high tide (otherwise the swim out is a bit too shallow) Certainly worth doing if you are staying in Apia.
