You may want to try this again and again once you've experienced the thrill of skimming the 16-foot waterfall down this natural rock slide.

Do it!

Such a beautiful sight. The grounds are kept so clean and beautiful. The stairs are a good work out and not too long. But the rocks are amazing. The water cool and fresh. My 2.5yr... read more

What a great way to spend the day...there are places to eat and the sliding rocks vary in sizes, so great for kids and adults...although you should still know how to swim.

We went here when it hadn't been raining and it was far too shallow. Check the water depth before you slide as you can cause abit of damage fly into a pool that is only thigh high!!!

Was this the sliding rocks featured in King Kapisi's 2000 song "Screams from the old Plantation" from the album 'Savage Thoughts'?? I hope so, I sang it a lot while we were there.

Beautiful waterfalls! There are rocks to slide down but we didn't brave them! Heard they are hard to get up from (and on seeing them, can understand this!!) The two waterfalls at the top are beautiful. We swam under them and the water was cool and refreshing. 10 tala entry.

As the name suggests there is an inherent risk to sliding down rocks and depending on the amount of rainfall the dept of the pool can vary. Having said that it was a very fun way to spend an hour or two in the heat of the day. The walk down and up from the car park is not for... More

This is a great take in for the adventure minded. It only costs $2 to get in. You'll need a cab or car to get there. Takes about 25 -30 minutes from town. You'll walk down maybe 75 yards of steep stairs. The rock slides are actually 3 water falls in a river. The upper one is maybe 20 feet... More

We visited the sliding rocks during our stay in Samoa. The gardens are lovely during the very steep walk down to the pools. There was very little signage so we were a bit unsure on which pools/slides were safe. The pools were quite shallow. Definitely worth a visit to have a break from the beach

This was fantastic and would thoroughly recommend it. Suitable for kids, we had 5 kids in our group aged 5 -10 and all got involved with some of the rock slides, but not the biggest ones. Be warned that a couple of the bigger ones will leave a few small bruises but its a lot of fun. The water is... More

There are 4 main pools, but the advertised family and children's pool were too awkward to get to with a 4 yo, so stayed at the top 2 pools, which were enjoyable. Mozzies only noticed whilst drying off so weren't a big problem for us. Wasn't busy either, and if you take your own snacks (take your rubbish home to... More
