Papapapaitai Falls, Apia

3.9
#5 of 13 in Nature in Upolu
View one of the longest waterfalls in Samoa at Papapapaitai Falls. Visitors can't actually reach the falls--this grand cascade is only viewable from afar, at a viewpoint next to the road. However, on a sunny day, it's a beautiful sight even from a distance. If you visit the viewpoint after a rainfall, when the waterfall is at its strongest, you may even hear a distant thundering. See Papapapaitai Falls and all Upolu has to offer by arranging your trip with our Upolu road trip tool .

  • Beautiful view on the cross-island road. One of Samoa's highest falls. Sadly, you can't get down to it without crampons.  more »
  • Would be really cool to see but the view is limited with trees and long grass at the lookout. I had to climb the railing to get a look.  more »

  • Good to just stop and take a look while you drive by. It is quite a tall waterfalls.
  • Great view on a clear day, but often covered by fog on humid and wet days.
  • Definitely worth a look. It's free.
  • Samoa Kegon Falls.
