Papaseea Sliding Rock, Apia

(400+ reviews on the web)
Waterfall
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.

  • There are 4 main pools, but the advertised family and children's pool were too awkward to get to with a 4 yo, so stayed at the top 2 pools, which were enjoyable. Mozzies only noticed whilst drying off...  more »
  • Good place to visit and get in touch with nature. No commericalism just go with the flow and get wet Samoan style!  more »
  • Well worth checking out and sliding down the rocks. We saw three generations of a family there and even 75 year old grandad did it. Steps back up are not too bad.  more »

  • We went on a sunny day and there was little water. You may want to go after it's been raining for more water and deeper pools to slide into. Take a good pair of shoes as of walking on rocks it's very slippery and hot! 5 Tala to get in. No bus, just take a cab from Apia.
  • This place is a rush! Its hard to believe that you can just slide down the rocks, but when I finally went for it, I couldn't stop. The ride itself is fairly smooth and loads of fun. Its also in an absolutely gorgeous setting. Definitely recommend a visit if you are in Samoa.
  • Papaseea is the greatest place to go too. :-)
  • This is the ideal place for a hot day. You will find all the teenagers and kids sliding down the natural waterslides (hence the name). Inside the valley it is nice and cool. Be ready for a fairly long hike from the carpark (maybe 20-30 minutes to get to the falls). Don't miss it though if you are in Samoa. We would go at least once a month while I was living there.
  • I was born in samoa and when i was little, every sunday my dad would take me and my brother to swim here. My last experience in papaseea was when my brother pushed me on the deep side and I drowned, but luckily my dad saved me. Papaseea is really fun, but i wouldnt dare go back there swimming right after rain. Its a fun place, but gotta hate the stairway. :P I love Papaseea Sliding Rock
