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.

Heaps of steps going down to the river slide. We were there on a hot day so it was nice and refreshing to even just swim in the rock pools within the river. We had a go on the rock slides, scary but great fun and surprisingly very smooth under your bum!! A bit of a climb back up the... More

We really loved it here :) bit of a walk down but that's ok the scenery is so beautiful and tranquil. We really enjoyed the quietness and the freshness of the water. The environment is so clean too. Highly recommended.

not enough water for sliding for large people but small kids would still enjoy. Had a pleasant picnic in the fales, sharing with the lizards at the top maintained by the Woman's Committee. Fantastic views, and a pleasant cool breeze in the shade. Steps steep for older people, or those with injuries

What an amazing experience. As a grown man, I was giggling like a schoolboy as I zipped down the various rock slides There is a long staircase used to enter the site, with various sets of rock slides. They are traditionally divided between men, women and children, but I saw most people interchange between the rockslides. Adults and children alike... More

The location of the sliding rocks is great because it's close to Apia - we were charged 5 tala for adults and 2 tala for our little girl. There are loads of steps going down which add to the excitement and help get a little bit of exercise in (especially after all the island food). I didn't slide down the... More

When you first arrive at the sliding rock, it looks a bit scary and you think if you slide down the rock you're going to hurt yourself. But once you brave it, it's actually a great slide and suprisingly very smooth. Unfortunately, we were there in July and as its the dry season, the water wasn't that deep but still... More

Papasea Sliding rock is about a 20 min drive from Apia centre. The scenery is beautiful and we paid 14 Tala for 2 adults, our 5 year old son and 2 year old daughter. This money is income to the local village who look after the grounds and path. If you're not willing to make this small contribution to the... More

First a bit scary, but then you relax. We were lucky that there were some locals who showed us how it should be done.
