Not that exciting and a fair distance from where you can take photos. Grounds are kept very nice. We went on a public holiday so couldn't stay long

We were on a tour with Samoa Scenic Tours who took us to these falls as part of a full day tour around the island of Upolu. I was really thrilled to see the falls as these are probably the longest falls I’ve ever seen....More

We stopped briefly to look at the falls from the lookout on the main road between Apia and the south coast. They were huge! Falling deep into the valley, but with an eerie mist hanging about, looked a bit like Jurassic Park! Very beautiful, but...More

Worth stopping in for a look but the water fall is some way off. It only cost a couple of Tala each to visit so you are helping a local family.

This waterfall is very tall one but I watched it from the distance! It would have been better if there were much closer viewing deck.

If you happen to be over that side of the island this is worth a look. Not much around it but a great stop on your way to wherever you're going over there.

It was really nice. You leave a donation at the front, and you get to access the gardens around there. There are also restrooms, so that was nice.

On the cross island road it's worth a brief stop, but not terribly exciting. Easy to park but then you just stop anywhere including in the middle of the road in Samoa!
