    It was one of the most incredible experiences! To Sua Ocean Trench is just stunning the water beautiful and clean. I highly recommend getting there in the morning as I got there about 10 am, and there was next to no one there and almost had the place to myself.
    The ladder is not good for older, less mobile people, but there is a platform at the bottle that can sit 10/20 ppl comfortably.

    I have seen this cathedral from afar when sailing into the Apia harbor and it is striking to see. Stopping at the church wasn't part of your excursion, but our tour guide wanted us to see it and we were so glad we did. As fantastic it is to see from afar, it is better up close. And the inside......wow wow wow.
    The church was completed in 1857 and since that time it has been been damaged, restored and expanded. If you are ever in Apia make the effort to visit this cathedral.

    Interesting to hear the story of the storyteller and his few years in Samoa in this fabulous house and gardens, there limited original pieces of furniture but it has been well recreated and you guide will talk through plenty.

    Incredible fresh water, so fresh and cool. Piula Caves is just beautiful, definitely worth visiting and spending some time floating in the gorgeous pool. There is also snorkelling off the beach there, which looked to be very popular. My recommendation would be to get there early in the morning before it gets too busy.

    For both experienced and novice snorkelers, this is a must-see at high tide. It start at an unassuming hut at the side of the road, where the caretaker colelcts a modest 10 tala ($4 USD) fee to help maintain this government-sanctioned reserve.

    The hut also has a small number of snorkeling masks for rent, but try to bring your own equiopment. The experience begins about 100 yards out as gently swim out in calm (and not very deep) water towards a buoy with the Samoan flag.

    You will pass over dozens of very much alive 2-foot wide clams with irridescent colors inside that "shiver" every few minutes (do not touch them as they may snap shut very quickly). As you approach the buoy, you will be stunned to look down on the really big clams, some 5-6 feet wide.

    Again, do this visit close to high tide so you can safely glide over and look down on these amazing creatures.

    Also , bring a waterprrof pouch for your cell phone to take videos and photos, because you will simply not be able to recount this experience in words.

    On a clear, sunny day, the sunlight sparkling and refracting on the sea floor is mesmerizing.

    Definitely try for high tide as there’s not a lot of depth in the water so can be shallow and you can end up hitting & damaging the coral.

    Worthwhile to have your own snorkeling gear & be confident swimmer as the best part is quite a way out by the sign in the water.

    Good spots to leave your towels, picnic tables & big swings to enjoy from the massive tree cover.

    Amazing views and feels like an Amazon swim or something out of a movie! The steps and trek down isn't somewhere I'd take my elderly parents or small/younger kids but in saying that there were a few toddlers when we got there.
    My family went down both sides of the sliding rocks and loved it! I think the changing area could do with a bit of an upgrade but the view and swim was splendid.

    The roadside viewing point gives you an excellent view across to the waterfall falling some 90m, it is fed from the crater behind

    One of Samoa's beautiful waterfalls tumbling down into a lush green valley, apparently even more spectacular in the rainy season. At the site there a small garden of various fruits and vegetables grown there and if you wish a demo of breaking a coconut for water and milk.

    My favorite waterfall in Upolo. Beautiful fresh water not far from The MA tree and the coastal walk. I go here every time I go to Samoa
