Places in American Samoa
Nestled in the heart of the Pacific Ocean is the Territory of American Samoa, an undiscovered Polynesian paradise just waiting to be explored.
From the moment you first see the islands with their rugged mountain peaks jutting out of the Pacific Ocean covered in lush tropical rainforest, you know you are in for a treat. At the centre of the main island of Tutuila is Pago Pago Harbor, one of the deepest in the Pacific surrounded by three towering majestic mountains, Mount Matafao, Mount Alava and Rainmaker Mountain.
Hike the challenging trails of the National Park of American Samoa or snorkel and dive the superb National Marine Sanctuary of American Samoa. Visit the museum in Fagatogo and view the three moon rocks given to American Samoa by President Nixon from the Apollo 11 Moon Mission. Spend the day on Aunu’u Island and hike the trail that rings the island stopping off at the only quick sand lake found in the Pacific.
Drive to both the eastern and western ends of Tutuila along the shoreline and see Humpback whales breaching and frolicking just a short distance from shore. Fish for marlin and tuna at the Pago Pago Harbor entrance. Visit a US Naval Base and explore the World War II sites and historical naval buildings. Shop forpopular American goods and experience famous Samoan hospitality at the many restaurants around Tutuila.
