This place is very well maintained - the grounds are immaculate and are spacious so you can take in the wonderful view. There is a walk down to the rock pools where there are picnic tables. The ladder down to the trench is a bit daunting - just take your time. Also, unless you have a backpack, don't take too... More

This place has to be one of the most amazing, scariest and coolest thing that I have ever done. The ladder is scary and high but don't let that out you off. The water is beautiful and clear and it is just such a surreal experience. An absolute must!!!!!

We visited the gardens and trench with a group of friends...note though it costs $20 WSD per head to enter. The gardens are very well placed with great views. It may be a challenge if heights are not your thing, but take your time on the wooden ladder down to the water and you'll enjoy the experience. There is an... More

Great experience, lovely to swim in. Be careful on the ladder when it's wet as can be slippery. The gardens are amazing and the views from clifftop awesome

We were on a cycling trip through Outdoor Samoa. We stopped here on the way passed and didn't want to leave. We were extremely lucky and go to swim for a few minutes by ourselves. Going down the ladder is not for those with height issues however it is extremely solid

This is a well managed stop on the south of the island. The gardens are beautifully kept and the views of the ocean are stunning. The trench itself is accessed by a narrow path and a steep step ladder which is not suitable for anyone scared of heights. Getting to swim in the pool is an awesome experience with a... More

One of the most beautiful places to go. So much fun. The only thing is you need to be very careful going down the ladder. Take your time because it gets very slippery when wet.

Just do it! it's a beautiful spot to hang out for a picnic too. It looks terrifying, but it is definitely worth doing. Safe as. Also, the addition of a cold water shower and bathrooms is nice, plus the gardens themselves are beautiful. Plenty of shade and fales too to enjoy and just look at the views which are fab.

The trench is a beautiful experience: jumping, swimming and enjoying the magic atmosphere... But there is actually much more! All the surroundings, a stunning rocky coast with water features and a beautiful park with hats where to eat and chill. Lots of flowers, the people at the entrance are very nice. Very worth price
