Afu Aau Waterfall, Savai'i

4.6
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.

  • $5 entrance fee and the scenery is breathtaking and beautiful. Very friendly villagers that greet you at the entrance. The walk up to the waterfall was so, so beautiful! Y’all have got to go and see for yourself whenever you’re on the big island.
  • Great place. Water was warm and facilities better than I expected.Well done to the aiga managing this must do tourist destination. 4.5 stars
  • Great place to swim, and have lunch. Just beautiful
  • Great waterfall with a deep pool you can dive into. They've done a great job and now have a good path all the way up to the fall from the carpark, toilet block etc. Worth the visit!!
  • Relaxing, quite a few small ones and a big one. Good place to dive and swim
