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
Just a turn off from the main cross island road is the Papapapaitai waterfall. Again, after seeing other high waterfalls, it's pretty average BUT no entrance fees, so worth a few minutes. more »
This free to view just off the main road from one side of the island to the other Just pull over and take in the amazing scenery 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.
