    Amazing waterfalls Savai’i
    If you like an easy to get to waterfall then you must visit these falls. Not too far off the main road with a well maintained access road and toilets have been provided by the village who look after these falls. The falls were clean but there are those that like to leave their rubbish on the ground or in the water. We loved these falls so much we went back twice, even though there is a $10 tala fee pp, regardless of age, we were happy to pay as they maintain the area.

    Lovely waterfalls and swimming hole
    Not very well signposted, but is just before the bridge when driving from the ferry and Google maps is correct. Drive to end of road where two car park areas and someone who will take your 10 Tala. Walk to end of the track past smaller waterfalls to most impressive one. Lovely to swim in and cool down. Highly recommend.

    Savaii Highlight!
    We came mid morning and there was only one other group there. They had a speaker and quite a crowd though, so we took advantage of the pool lower down to have to ourselves. That’s one of the nice things about this set of falls - multiple swimming options! The walls of the gorge are lush with beautiful vegetation, and added to the amazing experience, but the cool clean water was the highlight. We all left after an hour and a half of soaking feeling utterly relaxed! It was amazing. There are facilities (bathrooms and covered picnic tables) but the path leading to the highest pool is quickly eroding away. You can see they’ve tried to use mitigating steps, but the power of the water must make it too hard. It will take some engineering to solve long term.

    Kept going back for more
    fantastic spot. three separate falls to swim under with the last one being the BIG one. Such clear water, a cool rainforest setting, we visited every day we were on Savai'i. 10 Tala entry fee is well worth it.

We had an amazing time here, for the price and what is available we felt it was very reasonable! they have a toilet on site, picnic tables and plenty of space to have a swim even if it is busy! the main waterfall has rocks you can jump off, the water was very clear and super refreshing on a hot day, it got a bit busier at the main waterfall so we went back down to the smaller pools and had them completely to ourselves, the smaller pool even had a little man made dam that would made excellent swimming options for smaller children! very clean, very safe and super friendly staff, all for WST $10 per person. Parking is slightly limited but other than that, would highly recommend, it's a stunning location!!

Great waterfall, and its main swimming pool is excellent: clean and deep, you can climb the rocks and jump in.

Worth a visit. The pool was lovely to swim in. The path was easy and parking was not far away from the waterfall.

Just a short walk from the parking area is this beautiful waterfall and amazing swimming hole. We were the only people here and enjoyed the cool water on a very hot day in December. We stayed at a fabulous guesthouse nearby called Florences' house and will definitely come back to these falls for another visit on our next stay in Savai'i
