Papaseea Sliding Rock, Apia

3.9
#1 of 8 in Parks in Apia
Experience the thrill of a natural water slide at Papaseea Sliding Rock, where centuries of erosion have worn down the rock to create a smooth chute. In addition to the tallest slide, three smaller slides are located at the base of the waterfall, and all slides empty into a refreshing swimming hole. Watch out for the strong current, wear shorts on the slides, and expect some bumps and scratches. Toilets and changing rooms are available on site. If you visit during the dry season, make sure to check the depth of the pool before jumping in.

  • Our friends children were in swimming and it was raining in the hills and a little at the pool. My friend heard what sounded like a freight train coming and looked up the river to see a wall of water ...  more »

  • A long stairwell (feels longer on the way back up) but so much fun, set prices, fresh water. If you aren't up to sliding down the rocks, there is a great space under the top waterfall for a relaxing swim.
  • Paid AUD$12 to go to a 'swimming hole', which turned out to be some jagged rocks covered by raging waterfalls. Nice waterfalls, but NOT a swimming hole, and NOT worth AUD$2.50 per person.
  • When we went the water levels were low so the kids could only do the "beginners" slide.still awesome, they loved it
  • Great place. Beware of tourist pricing...
  • When we visited it was warm and raining, which was perfect! The river was in full flow ... I cant beleive you can safely slide down some rocks, in a river. Its a rush!
