Tafua Crater

Tafua Crater is located within the Tafua Peninsula Reserve, not far from Salelologa. The forest is ideal for bird watching with great potential to sight flying foxes and the tooth-billed pigeon. The activity of the birds is a pleasant experience to watch and the continuous chirping of the birds echoing in the surrounding atmosphere gives a different feel to the place.

Natural history tours which are provided by Safua Tours usually take visitors to the top of the crater which provides magnificent views of neighboring coastal villages. Visitors are recommended to bring good shoes, a camera and binoculars.
