The cave pool is very refreshing and the swim into the cave great. Fish swim with you so take your mask. The beach is warm and lots of fish and we found blue star fish. The were 3 turtles in a pool beside the pool. And dont forget to try the garden toilet.

Wet season means you most likely get the pool to yourself as we did. We paid to take the car down which is the best idea, 10 Tala is good value. It was low tide so we were able to swim further through, Chrystal clear water with many fish to be seen (GoPro camera a must) along with fins mask... More

Amazing clear blue cave pool with fish swimming in it! So refreshing! Go at low tide so you can swim through the cave unfortunately we went at high tide but still an amazing experience. Add it to your list

We stopped in here for a look around & swim. Definitely make sure you bring your snorkel set & flippers so you can explore the cave & check out the stripes fish that are everywhere. Reasonably priced & a great spot to take photos of the Pacific's oldest Methodist church, perched high on the cliff above the cave pool. Beautiful!

We went around 10am and it was perfect. Not many people and the pool depth was at a high level. The water is crystal clear. Great for snorkeling! It is better to take your car down so that you dont have to carry everything from the top. I go here everytime I go Samoa.

One of the many wonders of Upolu Islands. A fresh water man made pool by Piula Theological College. Such a beautiful setting and some how it feels magical if you ask me. The water is so clear you can see it underwater without goggles.

We went here first thing in the morning and it was the best swim ever. It costs 10 tala to take your car right down and I recommend that it was worth it. The water is clear and you can see all the fish. The cave has a sign up saying it is no longer safe to swim under cave... More

This was the best thing we did in Samoa. A fresh water lagoon coming from a cave that you can swim through. The water was the clearest I have ever seen and the cave was stunning. Travels underneath a church, making it seem even more magical.

What a beautiful, spiritual place for a family swim. Make sure you visit the new bathrooms - this will be an amazingly 'green' surprise.

Came here with family and it was beautiful. It was a rainy day but still enjoyed it. Set up food in the fales that are available. Had older people with us and you have the option to drive your car right down so you avoid walking down. 5 tala per person and 10 tala extra to drive down. The water... More
