You may want to try this again and again once you've experienced the thrill of skimming the 16-foot waterfall down this natural rock slide.

Have been to these rocks a few times. Once during the wet season (February). It was fabulous. Then again recently (June) No volume of water to flow over the rocks made it not only dangerous but not appealing. The lady taking the money was not forthcoming with information regarding how much water was flowing over the rocks. You can't see... More

This place was great!! So much fun and cheap fun at that. Unfortunately, there wasn't much water in August but it didn't stop us. Just check the water levels of the pools before you slide down!! We got a taxi for 20tala one way and called one to come and get us with no issues.

We were on our last day at Samoa and a local guide was taking us to different places near Apia. We had already been to a number of waterfalls and did some swimming. We thought some of the other places we had been to we prettier and nicer swimming. The sliding part need a bit more water to make it... More

My dad used to play here as a youngster so a special place for us to visit, must admit the long trek down the stairs to get to the pools can be a bit off putting in the heat, feels even longer coming up but the water is clean, clear and refreshing and the slippery rocks make for a fun... More

Had a nice afternoon swim and it is very peaceful and enjoyable but when it's been dry for a while it really didn't seem deep enough to slide. Apparently some locals had done but we checked the depth and decided not to risk it.

The travel down is fairly difficult so not appropriate to take young very active and difficult to control children. Sometimes during the dry season, there is no water there, making the trip up to it not so worthwhile.

Not really busy when we went but it is always nice when you have the place to yourself. Its a little hike down the stairs but once youre down there you can swing down make rocks and enjoy the water. Hiking up you might want to take your time.

This is a fun experience for the family. The grounds are well kept with beautiful fauna and flora. There's many steps to get down but the cool water fixes that sweaty hike and the slide down the slippery rocks makes for a fun and thrilling experience for all ages. Young children must be accompanied by an adult to help them... More

We were very disappointed with all the rubbish at sliding rock. I could understand this if it was an unmanned forest, but when one has to pay to enter, I really think this is unacceptable.

Natural waterslides - how amazing!! The staircase down is steep and has some very large steps, but it is so worth the effort. Below, you are greeted by a waterfall and a rocky creek/river, which flows down over slippery rocks. There is a beginners "slide" to get your courage up and then the big one if you're game. Great fun,... More
