American Samoa Information

American Samoa offers rugged cliffs, glistening beaches, biologically rich coral reefs and tropical rainforests inhabited by many unique birds and fish.

The Samoan culture is considered the oldest in all of Polynesia. The first people to the Samoan islands came by sea from southeast Asia some 3,000 years ago. Over the centuries, distinct cultural traits emerged collectively called fa'asamoa, the Samoan way.

American Samoa consists of five inhabited volcanic islands clothed in tropical rainforest. The park is located on three separate islands--Tutuila, Ofu and Tau. It is comprised of 9,100 acres of land and ocean, leasing the land from seven villages to create a unique partnership of preservation and protection.
