Bring your snorkeling gear and a sense of curiosity to Palolo Deep Marine Reserve, a protected area for coral and marine life. Try to plan your visit during high tide, and float above a vibrant world teeming with tropical fish and coral carpets. If you are lucky, you may even spot sea turtles and sharks. It's possible to visit during low tide, but there's a higher chance of damaging the coral or hurting yourself. The attraction provides toilets, showers, and changing rooms.

  • Great spot to snorkel. I think it was 5 Thala each to get in. They have toilets and change rooms for your use also. The main snorkelling area is about 100 m off the rocks and if its an incoming tide.....  more »
  • For the price they charge, the changing room, lavatory and other amenities provide are more than what we asked for. The dive itself is divine. Everyone should snorkel here.  more »

  • Wow! If you swim out to the stick and then a bit passed that, you get to the wall of live coral and an abundance of fish! By far the best snorkelling I did in all of Samoa. Super cheap entry at only 5 Tala and they will keep your belongings safe behind the counter for you. Going at low tide makes it easier to swim out to the stick.
  • Very nice place but 4☆ coz no coffee shop or food to buy. Better bring all with you
