To Sua Ocean Trench, Lotofaga

Marvel at the splendor of To Sua Ocean Trench, a massive swimming hole filled with blue water and surrounded by lush vegetation. The swimming hole is set deep in the ground, so a ladder is required to enter and exit. The water fills the hole via an ancient lava tube connected to the ocean, which creates a current. Weak swimmers can take hold of a rope across the center of the hole. Bring something to cover up with when you're not swimming, as conservative dress is requested out of the water. A few picnic tables are available, so consider packing some refreshments.

  • On the day we visited the ladder was being repaired, however the grounds and the location were exceptional. I would recommend a visit when staying in Samoa.  more »
  • Yes it's a scary ladder but it's definitely worth it! So beautiful. The gardens that surround To Sua are also amazing. Well worth the visit ❤️  more »
  • Scarey ladder (wear reef shoes) into the hole makes this a rather special experience. The view from the top is surpassed by that at the bottom. An amazing experience, even in the rain. Do be aware that the current can be quite strong which is why there are ropes across the trench.
  • Its a really pretty spot to swim in. The view of the ocean, the quietness, and the sweet trench is a cool place to swim. The ladder to go down into the trench is a little sketchy and there are some really dangerous spots within the trench itself, but if you are well balanced and coordinated, you should have no problem. They could fix the way the ladder and the platform at the bottom to be safer/funner like multiple platforms to jump off of.
