How sad. A beautiful place to visit with our family and the car park was loaded with takeout packets , plastic bags and roaming dogs.

We used Hunt's Experience Tours to reach this location. Great place for photographs and one of the places that need to be visited on a trip to Samoa.

The waterfall is one of a few on the Cross Road Island. The most impressive one though hard to get close to and best seen in the morning; in the afternoon the sun shines over it so it's hard to get pictures or see clearly....More
