Summary: Falefa Falls is a small waterfall that drops into Falefa Bay. You can swim here, as well as view the falls.

A small waterfall that drops into Falefa Bay, you can swim up to Falefa Falls or view it from a short distance downstream. Falefa Bay is fairly deep, and was used as a harbour for ships transporting crops in the late 1800s and early 1900s.

The bay isn’t too inviting for a swim, but you can easily enter the water from here.

Getting to Falefa Falls

The waterfall is signposted along Richardson Road, near the village of Falefa and about 35min drive from Apia. From the carpark, a paved path leads to down to the edge of the bay. An entry fee is payable.
