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.

Easy stop for waterfall lovers on the cross island road. Distant view of the falls and no trash in the dirt pullout, just a friendly dog. more »
It's free not like other waterfalls where you have to pay just to look. Close to town but might be difficult to see the small new sign on the main road. Unfortunately there is alot of rubbish being thrown down the mountain. I hung up a recycled tyre sign to try & encourage people to keep place clean but someone stole that.
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.
