Create an itinerary including Piula Cave Pool
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. You can plan Apia trip in no time by asking Inspirock to help create your itinerary.

  • An amazing fresh water pool with a swim through to another pool. Plenty of fish inside to swim with. Water temp was cool at first but once is was fine.

  • Excellent place to visit. The crystal clear fresh water is really refreshing and the range of fish centimetres from your face is amazing. If your adventurous and slight of figure you can swim through the small passage at the back of the main cave into a second one.
  • Came here because of the good reviews, but it’s nothing but a pool of water. Like many other spots again in Samoa, you had to pay. The view of the ocean was nice, but there weren’t a lot of fish to see inside the pool. We met some locals who said there used to be a hole inside the cave to swim to the other side, but it doesn’t seem to exist anymore.
  • Nice but prepare your pocket to pay for it. People unfortunately are just asking for money but not taking care of the place so, in our case, young people come and start jumping (that’s forbidden) but not no one stops them. So pay for nothing is absolutely useless. What a pittt
  • Beautiful fresh water cave pool. Spotted a few eels, worth the drive. Water is nice and cool. A dozen of outdoor fales (Samoan open houses) you can use. It’s costs 10Tala per person. Free parking but I find it’s a little distant. Pay an extra 10 Tala so you can get a parking right near the cavepool is more preferable. Toilets and showers are available there. They also have open covered public places with tables and seats so families can bring there food and eat together. I enjoyed my time here.
  • Amazing cave pool for swimming and snorkelling, fresh water crystal clean. A bit cooler than sea water, but it is perfect to chill out in hot summer time.
