The To Sua Ocean Trench is one of those beautiful spots that almost seems unreal. The water is clear and the view is just amazing. The ladder can seem a bit confronting because there are no hand rails but it is very solid and sturdy. It was not slippery when I visited and I was lucky enough to be one... More

Fantastic place grounds are very nice and well maintained. The ladder a ladder not steps. It is very steep and if you are older or small a bit tricky to traverse as there are no handrails. It is well worth the effort as the water is clear and clean. Try to time your visit with hige tide if possible (especially... More

Add this to your tour schedule as it is truly special. What I love mostly is there is no 'nanny' OHS, which adds to the experience and thrill of this place. If it was in Australia, it would have to have a zig-zag walkway all the way down, with 6-foot fences etc and spoil its natural beauty. The water was... More

To Sua trench is an absolute must see in Samoa. There is a small fee to enter the site, but is well worth it. The grounds are immaculate with lots of open Fales to rest after you swim in the Trench and magnificent views of the ocean. We visited the Trench at low tide so we had to climb down... More

To Sua Ocean Trench is a must see in Samoa. The water is clear and clean and the grounds are exceptionally well kept. First thing to note is the tide - go at high tide to be able to jump into the trench (it's very deep) or go at low tide to feel hot water vents from the trench floor.... More

69 steps will get you from the top to the platform where you can jump into the crystal clear waters at To Sua Trench. This is truly a magical place, swimming in the sea in a secluded naturally formed environment. The sea is aqua, the colourful fish swim below you, the cave is beautiful and almost cathedral. The step ladder... More

The entire location where this is located is gorgeous with a fabulous coast line with wild ocean and lots of great gardens and fales. The trench itself has some very steep stairs to get down into the water. WE saw ppl jumping from one of the ledges. Against the rules but fun to watch. This is worth the trip and... More

Visited the site twice. Had the pool to myself at 9am, but returned in afternoon to a much busier pool. Serenity in the morning is worth waking up early for! But harder to shoot photographs in the morning with not enough natural sunlight hitting the pool so things a bit dark. Entrance is 20 tala - but worthwhile to see... More
