Piula Cave Pool, Upolu

4.5
#3 of 11 in Nature in Upolu
Located beneath a Methodist chapel, Piula Cave Pool is a natural freshwater swimming hole fed by a spring. The crystal-clear water extends outside the cave as well, so claustrophobic visitors can still enjoy a dip. However, if you are feeling adventurous, explore farther in and find a second attached cave. Take your snorkeling gear and try to spot the tropical fish. Changing rooms and toilets are available.

  • Crystal clear waters forming a pool with a cave as a backdrop. Closed on Sundays as it is run by a church.  more »

  • Beautiful 😍 we took or snorkeling gear and the kids loved it! We didn’t swim thru as the locals told us it can be dangerous for young children - our kids are 8 and 14. But absolutely stunning!
  • Excellent place to visit. The crystal clear fresh water is really refreshing and the range of fish centimetres from your face is amazing. If your adventurous and slight of figure you can swim through the small passage at the back of the main cave into a second one.
