From waterfalls thundering down off towering cliffs to more sedate cascades of water over smooth rock, there are plenty to explore.
Upolu’s south coast has the country’s best collection of spectacular falls that are easily accessible to visitors.
Take half a day, or more, and see each one. Some, like Togitogiga Falls, have swimming holes and also a changing room and toilets. Others, like the 100m high Papapapai-Tai Falls are strictly for looking only.
On Savai’i, the southern coast has the most waterfalls too. One of the most popular is the Afu Aau Falls, which emerges from lush green rainforest and plunges into a deep pool which is safe for swimming.
At the Mu Pagoa Falls, a shallower pool formed where Samoa’s largest river flows to the sea, and is is used by visitors and locals alike.
