Summary: Togitogiga Waterfall is a beautiful series of cascades and swimming holes in O Le Pupu Pue National Park, reached by a short walk.

A popular swimming and picnic spot, Togitogiga Waterfall is located within O Le Pupu Pue National Park, near the village of Saleilua. A short walking track leads to the lower pool, which has a single cascade. It’s a beautiful pool, and the best place to swim (the pool may not be as impressive towards the end of the dry season – the best time for viewing and swimming is during the wet season, which is usually from November to April).

You can clamber down to the ledge at the top of the lowermost cascade, to get a view of the upper pool – there are actually four separate cascades that drop into this pool, but you can only see one of them from this angle.

A path continues up to the top of the upper cascades, which gives you a nice view of the upper pool – you can swim in this pool too, but getting in is a bit trickier.

Getting to Togitogiga Waterfall

The unsealed access road to Togitogiga Waterfalll is signposted on the Main South Coast Road, about 40min from Apia. From the parking area there is a short walking trail.

At the end of the walking trail are a number of fales as well as changing rooms and restrooms above the river, and a paved trail down to the lower pool.
