The dwarf cave is a very different experience but certainly interesting and worth doing when on Savaii.
It is a very bumpy 10-15 minute drive to the cave from the village where you’ll be met by a local guide. Expect to pay around $10 tala...More

This is a must see place if you're into diving into risky dealings. You need to be fairly fit to travel down into the caves so people with bad knees beware! Some interesting local legends surround this tourist site.
