Driving over the Cross Island Rd we stopped to view the falls no a bad sight. Lots of native bush a high spot to view and a lovely pool at the bottom. Wish there was away to get to it?

This is one of many waterfalls in Samoa which are fantastic to visit. Would recommend taking a guide to ensure you find them all.

We were on a mission to see as many waterfalls as we could on our trip to Samoa. They are all amazing and this one is too!!!
