You don't need to pronounce the name to appreciate these spectacular falls that plunge 500 feet into a volcanic crater, surrounded by a lush rain forest.

This waterfall is very tall one but I watched it from the distance! It would have been better if there were much closer viewing deck.

Impressive falls but don't get too close to the edge in the viewing area/car park its a long way down. As with many of the public spaces in Samoa there are no bins, so PLEASE take your rubbish home with you, if you stop to...More

If you happen to be over that side of the island this is worth a look. Not much around it but a great stop on your way to wherever you're going over there.

It was really nice. You leave a donation at the front, and you get to access the gardens around there. There are also restrooms, so that was nice.

On the cross island road it's worth a brief stop, but not terribly exciting. Easy to park but then you just stop anywhere including in the middle of the road in Samoa!

Place is nice on clear day after some rain. You can really see the raw beauty of Samoa in this rugged falls.

When we were here (at the lookout) scrub very overgrown so couldnt get full impact of the waterfall - could have been very impressive.

Wonderful waterfall, could do with a clean up of some one the nearby rubbish. We couldn't find the walkway to the swimming pool though

We drove past and stopped at the falls on the way to the other side of the island, the falls were pretty but hard to see across from the viewing area because of overgrown trees obscuring them from the car park.
