Piula Cave Pool, Upolu

4.5
#4 of 13 in Nature in Upolu
Located beneath a Methodist chapel, Piula Cave Pool is a natural freshwater swimming hole fed by a spring. The crystal-clear water extends outside the cave as well, so claustrophobic visitors can still enjoy a dip. However, if you are feeling adventurous, explore farther in and find a second attached cave. Take your snorkeling gear and try to spot the tropical fish. Changing rooms and toilets are available.

  • Wonderful fresh water pool cave. Upgraded facilities (toilets, covered areas to picnic, grass areas). Also can swim through cave...if you are brave enough. Fish swim around your feet...beautiful.

  • Great natural cool water (opposed to the beaches which are warm) pools for all the family. Paid around 30 tala for 5 of us. Went on a public holiday so it was extra busy, would be nicer on a quieter day.
  • Loved it! Beautiful place to visit. I think I have found paradise.
  • An absolutely beautiful spot for a swim and relaxing time. Water is as beautiful as in the pictures and is fresh water. Fish accompany you whilst in the water but leave you well alone. The pool has a large covered area with picnic tables to make yourself comfortable. A few meters away is the beach so I went for a swim in both
