Destination Information for American Samoa

American Samoa, as its name suggests, is an American territory in the South Pacific. It’s made up of seven islands and the largest, Tutuila, is home to the capital, Pago Pago. This island paradise is filled with volcanic mountains, tropical rainforest and lush woodland. Pago Pago is a natural harbour and remains a traditional fishing town. There are many other picturesque towns and villages scattered throughout the islands.

Most visitors to American Samoa come for the breathtaking views on the islands hiking trails through the mountains of the country’s National Park, although the idyllic sandy beaches on the island of Ofu are also a major draw. The tropical marine life surrounding the islands is colourful and fascinating, so be sure to snorkel if you’re heading to the beach.

Travel to American Samoa is comparatively unrestricted and citizens of many Western countries do not require a visa to obtain entry. The airport in Pago Pago operates direct flights to and from Hawaii and Samoa, with wider international connections available in those locations. Although not the easiest destination to get to for many tourists, the stunning scenery and feeling of being on a forgotten island is worth the journey.
