American Samoa Quick Travel Guide
With a travel rating of 42%, American Samoa is hidden gem among the many jewels in the South Pacific. Considered the heart of Polynesia, this group of six islands is showcase for a rich, ancient culture and a natural wonderland. Tutuila, the main island in the archipelago, is home to the capital Pago Pago. The island - often called the "Rocks" – is mostly mountains but ringed with beaches and coral reefs and home to six terrestrial and three marine ecosystems, which are heighted by American Soama's National Park and the Fagatele Bay Marine Sanctuary. Whether you are fan of hiking, snorkeling, or diving, it's all here. Hike to the top of Mount Alava through lush switchbacks and see if you can spot some WWII wrecks in Pago Pago Harbor and lonely, little Flower Pot Rock. The Manu'a Islands are volcanic islands ringed by dense rain forest and spectacular sea cliffs like those on Ta'u. Steep slopes tumble down to pristine beaches and coral-filled waters like Ofu Beach. Its sleepy villages are said to be the source of Samoan and Polynesian cultures, and contains the tombs of the last Tu'i Manu'a (the paramount chiefs of these islands). Any way you look at it, American Samoa is a dazzling array of natural wonders and cultural diversity. This gem really shines!
