Must see & Do, this is exceptional beautiful swimming spot. Jumping off the ladder is great fun and swimming through the cave is a little eerie but awesome as well

We loved climbing down into the cool trench and swimming aournd in the pool - great to have safety ropes so always felt very safe and the steep ladder was sturdy. We also loved having our own little fale to base ourselves in and to explore the beautiful gardens from. The views are fantastic and the rock pools have a... More

We went there at about 4pm after tripping around Upolu island. It was still lovely and looks great by eye, I would recommend for photos and maybe looking a bit more blue to go during the day when the sun is above. We also went at low tide still lovely to swim however you could not jump or dive in... More

Apart from the trench itself the site had extensive tended gardens what I particuarly loved was the spectacular coastal views from the cliff tops - lovely little Fales to sit in the shade and observe the ocean from - well worth a visit - I didn't mind paying an entrance fee but thought the price of WST$20 a little high...

Amazing place to have a look at. If you can have a swim it would be worth having one of the locals there otherwise it could be a very dangerous place to swim. The ladder is very steep and very slippery so hold on. The water was not clean on the day we were there, but still good to have... More

We stayed at the Aga Resort which is only about 10-15 minute drive from the trench. Please be aware that you do have to pay $20 Samoan dollars to enter the Trench. The surrounding gardens are beautiful and very well maintained. I advise to check the tides as we did this at low tide and not very exciting. Any one... More

Swimming hole below ground lever...worth a look as well as the panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean. There is a ladder to climb down to the swimming hold or Trench as it is called and although I am scared of heights, I just took it slowly and was find. Tidal swimming hole but can swim when tide is out also.... More
