There is no better place to go chasing waterfalls than Samoa. Multiple waterfalls are available for tourists to admire, photograph and swim under. They are not-to-be-missed opportunities.
Sopoaga Falls is on Upolu Island and is a giant! It is the largest waterfall in Samoa within easy reach. Admire this beauty from a viewing platform that offers the perfect vantage to photograph the water plunging into the canyon below. The platform is only a few meters from the car park and entry costs around 10WST.
Afu Aau Falls:
The best of Savai’i Island has to be Afu Aau Falls. This is the perfect location for a swim in the crystal-clear pool. You can relax under smaller falls or get up close to the big falls. Thrill-seekers can jump off the rocks at varying heights for an exhilarating rush. The walk to the falls from the car park is around 5-minutes. There are multiple swimming holes further downstream along the track, so you can take your pick! It’s the perfect spot for a picnic.
Another waterfall that is best admired from afar, as it is very tricky to get to the bottom. The viewing point is close to the car park. Large falls tumble into a pool creating another small waterfall and making this a unique looking beauty.
Another waterfall that is perfect for a refreshing swim! 2 small falls flow into a big deep swimming hole only a short walk from the car park. It’s a good spot for lunch or to cool off after hiking the coastal walking track.
Another giant in the Samoan highlands, Fuipisia Falls offers a closer view from the platform than Papapapai or Sopoaga making for even more dramatic views and photographs. The fare is a bit more than the others, at 20WST per adult. If you are on a budget, visit Sopoaga instead. There is also a rock pool you can swim in near the top.
Samoa has such a great variety of waterfalls, there is something for everyone to enjoy. Be sure to add these to your to-do list while on your Samoa Holiday.
