Beautiful falls - some of the best I've seen. This is a must visit if you are in Samoa. You have to pay an entrance fee but it is worth it. Bring a picnic lunch and take in the view!

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.

Definitely worth a visit. There are many waterfalls in Samoa but this one was by far the best on Upolu.
