To Sua Ocean Trench, Lotofaga

Must see · Nature / Park · Geologic Formation
Marvel at the splendor of To Sua Ocean Trench, a massive swimming hole filled with blue water and surrounded by lush vegetation. The swimming hole is set deep in the ground, so a ladder is required to enter and exit. The water fills the hole via an ancient lava tube connected to the ocean, which creates a current. Weak swimmers can take hold of a rope across the center of the hole. Bring something to cover up with when you're not swimming, as conservative dress is requested out of the water. A few picnic tables are available, so consider packing some refreshments.

  • Beautiful upkeep of the property. It’s $20 per person and it’s well worth your money and possibly 1GB of pictures in your phone. Loved it here!
  • Scarey ladder (wear reef shoes) into the hole makes this a rather special experience. The view from the top is surpassed by that at the bottom. An amazing experience, even in the rain. Do be aware that the current can be quite strong which is why there are ropes across the trench.
