    American Samoa travel guide

    A photogenic feast of, electric-blue depths, jagged green peaks and idyllic beaches, American Samoa's islands are what the South Pacific daydreams are made of. Tutuila, a blue-collar fishing town, is home to Pago Pago, nestled beside one of the world's most stunning natural harbours; flower-scented villages cling to deep-rooted traditions. For extreme escapism, heading to the remote Manu’a Islands would be a great idea. It is believed to be the birthplace of Polynesia or hike the trails of the National Park of American Samoa. Whichever adventure you choose, this is one Pacific paradise you're likely to have all to yourself. Read more

    American Samoa is the only inhabited US territory south of the equator. However, only a few people realize that these lush tropical islands hold geometrically cut mountains, which is fantastic, and blue waters that rival the beauty of Tahiti and Hawaii. Samoan culture is so strong that some tourists claim it's even more traditional than the Independent Samoa next door. If you're seeking a Polynesia that's authentic, nearly devoid of tourists and full of adventure opportunities, American Samoa may be just the place for you.



    What to see in American Samoa?



    Most of the population and industry that is primarily fishing and canneries are found on the main island of Tutuila, in and around Pago Pago Harbour. The intrepid can follow Margaret Mead's footsteps to the quiet and remote Manu'a Islands to the east, but transport can be time-consuming and unpredictable.
