Admire the beauty of Afu Aau Waterfall and cool off in the blue freshwater pool at its base. Explore the outer edges where the water is shallow, or if you are feeling brave, swim into the middle where the water is deeper and try to touch the waterfall. Wear reef shoes to climb onto the surrounding rock formations and use them as diving platforms, but keep safety in mind as there are no lifeguards. Toilets are provided a short walk from the attraction. Put Afu Aau Waterfall into our Savai'i trip itinerary maker app to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Savai'i.

  • Great spot for cooling off on a hot day and cliff jumping. It’s a beautiful pool and a short distance off the main road.
  • You gotta see it for yourself. Well maintained and untouched beauty. A must experience waterfall..
  • Beautiful location for photos and to cool off in the water. That's some good jumping spots. Bring goggles and look underwater, there's lots of crawfish type critters around especially along the far side.
  • Amazing spot to cool off with the family, we all had a blast
  • Lovely falls and easy to get to (i.e. side road off the main road is not that long). Great place for a swim - water is cool but nowhere near as cold as a NZ river/lake.
