“Stop at Falls during day tour of Upolu”
Reviewed September 25, 2012

We visited the Falls during a tour around Upolu with Samoa Scenic Tours. Very nice, but would have been more impressive when been rain. Guide pointed out often the falls not as full anymore

“Wonderful view”
Reviewed September 15, 2012

The view here is amazing, like taken from some movie. This is however pretty much all there is. It is probably a good idea to make this stop while driving to some other attraction on the island as it is located near one of the main roads cutting through the island.

“Finally foundd our waterfall!”
Reviewed September 1, 2012

After a failed hunt for a waterfall on savai'i we were happy to easily locate this wonderful set of falls in the hills of the main island, only 15 mins drive from town this waterfall is massive. Only downer is that it's quite far away from the veiwing deck but is still a great spot for great pictures.

“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.
