If in Samoa you gotta do the trench!

Unique...you'll understand once your swimming in there and looking skyward, or jumping in...or swimming through the cave.

Beautiful and a must see! Strong current in the trench so wasn't prepared for that. Must feel confident climbing ladders.

A steep climb down shouldn't put you off! The water was actually quite warm, but it was exhilarating to do it. The water has high buoyancy and there are ropes to hold onto as well, and in some areas you can touch the bottom. We went on a rainy day to get best views of waterfalls, and this place was... More

Not enough fales to rest in and no place to change in but a beautiful place to visit. The water somewhat murky resembles the mexican cenotes. Only for the very able because there is a steep way down a ladder.

The famous To Sua trench did not disappoint. It's a bit of a drive but a beautiful drive trough traditional villages. The climb down into the trench to swim requires a reasonable level of effort but the trench can still be enjoyed by standing at the lip, behind the safety rail. I fell asleep on a banana lounge beside the... More

This is an experience to remember. This place is beautiful! Its 20 Tala per person to visit but it is well worth it. We went here with our family from Samoa. We had a lot of elders and they still enjoyed it. We took a huge picnic and sat at one of the fales to eat and enjoy the day.... More

This is a different experience in beautiful ocean view surroundings. The ladder is wide and sturdy, but I recommend wearing shoes to go up and down. It is easy to get on and off and as long as you have 3 points of contact with the ladder at all times it is very safe. Just do it - you won't... More

What a magical spot this is, the water is crystal clear and swimming in the Trench was certainly a unique experience for us. The wooden ladder to climb down however was not for the fainthearted.
