“In the jungle”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 19, 2013

Once you get to the falls, it was nice. But, the place was not kept really good. Everything was falling apart. Didn't go swimming because the grass was so over grown you couldn't even get to the water, was affraid to walk on the grass because couldn't see what was under neath it. Evenstill, I was just glad to see it and left.

“More needed to improve”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013

The falls are breath-taking, but would need more safety bars or something to stop the kids from getting into trouble. Would recommend that barricades be placed right around the area where people are to view the falls.

“Impressive waterfall beside the road”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2013

Initially we missed this waterfall as we drove up the range in pouring rain and fog, but we went back the next day in sunshine and it was quite impressive. The best viewing (and where most people stand) is nowhere near the safety fence - be careful around the edge. Well worth 5 minutes.

“Easy Viewing from the main road”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2013

I certainly wouldn't plan a day trip around visiting this view point but it's a great 5 minute stop-off if you're on you way across the island via the main road that goes South from Apia to the south coast. From the view point you can get a good view and pictures of the towering waterfall. It's free to view from here and there's plenty of parking.
