Piula Cave Pool, Upolu

4.5
#2 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.

  • Not that exciting. Maybe nice natural pool with little cave for families with kids but otherwise as impressive as any other (free) coastal area in the island
  • Amazing. Like the rest of the country, it is low key and laid back. Top tip: use a snorkel to see the fish! A waterproof light would not go astray in the back of the cave. Definitely go into the cave and look back to the entrance to see the electric blue water.
