“Breath taking”
Reviewed June 28, 2013

An absolutely lovely waterfall. The walk down to the pool was great, but climbing up, well lets say i know im not getting younger, but totally worth it.Off road parking, and no charges a bonus.

“Beautiful, like all waterfalls are :)”
Reviewed June 5, 2013

This was a great stop along the Cross over Road were you can stop (no fee) and admire the falls. At the time of us writing they were in the process of fixing the roads, but this in no way detracted from it all, as there was still a little area left aside where you could park the car and get out and have a look.

“quick stop to look”
Reviewed May 8, 2013

If you are driving on the Cross Island Rd from the North coast to South Coast (or Vice Versa) it is worth a quick stop to look. 100 meters back there is a track to walk down to the pool but we did not do thta.

“Aussie living in Samoa”
Reviewed March 16, 2013

This is a spectacular fall and is very easy to get to with no money changing hands, fairly rare here in Samoa.During the dry season not alot to see,but during the wet can be pretty awesome. The road there at the moment is pretty rough from the cyclone and heavy rains, but its the road that takes you across the island, so you will be going past anyway. It right off the road, no long track to get stuck on.
