Beautiful natural water ocean trench, delightful colours, swimming and area. I would really like to see the trench improve the quality and safety of the ladder. It is made of timber, with large spaces between the rungs and no arm railings. It is also set...More

We visited this amazing natural ocean trench on a day tour. We had only an hour there but would have liked longer. You pay 20 tala to enter and can then climb down a steep ladder (quite slippery in parts, not for the unsteady!) into...More

Well worth the careful climb down on the slippery ladders. The water is beautiful. I’d suggest making use of the ropes in the water as there is a strong current in the trench. Leave yourself enough time to wander the beautiful grounds and surrounding area...More

The trip down wasn’t too bad, the ladder is narrow and slippery but once your in the water it gets scary. The issue is it’s tidal so out of the blue the tide comes in and then flows out, it is very strong and unless...More

50 of us arrived in old-school Samoan buses which added to our excitement, we ditched our clothes and ran in the warm rain to descend the wooden ladder and dive into the Trench - A Must Do - A Must Experience while in Samoa

To Sua Ocean Trench is beautiful. It is certainly worth the climb down the steep ladder. The water was crystal clear

We arrived early in the morning and had the trench to ourselves. It is worth a visit, swim in the trench and explore the gardens.

Stunning Scenery. Great place to swim, photograph and explore the rugged coastline of lava tubes and rocks. Ideal location for a lunchtime picnic.
