As one of the most photographed places on the planet I was expecting a lot & To Sua didn't disappoint. Amazing place to spend some time. Great place to swim & even better place to photograph. One of the more expensive entry fees on Upolu but you have to do it just to say you've been here. Great experience!

The To Sua ocean trench was definitely on my Samoa bucket list and it did not disappoint. It is a spectacular natural wonder with clean crystal clear salt water. even at low tide when we were there the swimming was great although a higher tide would allow for more adventurous jumping or diving into the pool! Combine this with a... More

Unique...you'll understand once your swimming in there and looking skyward, or jumping in...or swimming through the cave.

Beautiful and a must see! Strong current in the trench so wasn't prepared for that. Must feel confident climbing ladders.

A steep climb down shouldn't put you off! The water was actually quite warm, but it was exhilarating to do it. The water has high buoyancy and there are ropes to hold onto as well, and in some areas you can touch the bottom. We went on a rainy day to get best views of waterfalls, and this place was... More

Not enough fales to rest in and no place to change in but a beautiful place to visit. The water somewhat murky resembles the mexican cenotes. Only for the very able because there is a steep way down a ladder.

The famous To Sua trench did not disappoint. It's a bit of a drive but a beautiful drive trough traditional villages. The climb down into the trench to swim requires a reasonable level of effort but the trench can still be enjoyed by standing at the lip, behind the safety rail. I fell asleep on a banana lounge beside the... More

This is an experience to remember. This place is beautiful! Its 20 Tala per person to visit but it is well worth it. We went here with our family from Samoa. We had a lot of elders and they still enjoyed it. We took a huge picnic and sat at one of the fales to eat and enjoy the day.... More
