Impressive sight. We were driving along and came across the Fall. Good safe deck to take photos. Enjoyed the serene view.

“very distant, seen much better waterfalls”
Reviewed August 27, 2012

I'm sure there are better waterfalls than this in Samoa, good for a quick stop on cross island road, but not worth a special trip.

“Beautiful sight”
Reviewed August 22, 2012

If you are travelling along Cross Island Road, it is worth stopping to view the falls. There is only a viewing area as they are quite a disance away but still spectacular!

“spectacular - and Free”
Reviewed August 17, 2012

Because we were driving the cross island road we saw these. Worth the stop as they are very high falls, they are some distance away but can be seen from the viewing area by the road side. I wouldn't do a special trip to see them. It was later in the afternoon and they seemed even more spectacular because cloud and mist was coming in over these which gave then a real eerie feeling. Narrow falls but with a long drop. Bonus is they are one of the few free things you can see on the island.
