View one of the longest waterfalls in Samoa at Papapapaitai Falls. Visitors can't actually reach the falls--this grand cascade is only viewable from afar, at a viewpoint next to the road. However, on a sunny day, it's a beautiful sight even from a distance. If you visit the viewpoint after a rainfall, when the waterfall is at its strongest, you may even hear a distant thundering.

Papapapaitai Falls Reviews
Simple and straightforward, this is a beautiful waterfall. No facilities, nothing particularly close, but a nice stop off if you’re passing. more »
The actual falls are amazing and you can see them fall into 2 ponds on the way down. The let down for us was the car parking area, full of huge pot holes and rubbish laying around. more »
Papapapaitai (it is as fun to say in a sentence as it looks) is one of the tallest waterfalls in Samoa. The viewpoint is freely accessible off the cross island road and has its on carpark. You cannot get close to the waterfall as shown in the pictures.
Magnificent falls! Can only watch it from faraway but it’s beautiful! Even better with the sun out (it was cloudy) Only thing to watch out is the dog poop around.
