My favorite hike in the park. Be sure to hike down to the tide pools. They were so pretty. More info on my TA Trips page.

Was able to complete the in/back from Fagasa Pass in 3 hours without much time at the top. Beautiful view, still, and well maintained road/trail. No dogs, which is hard to find/ideal here, too!

National Park of American Samoa

Reviewed By L1797DCgeorger - Gig Harbor, United States

Unique park with many interesting views and beautiful scenery. Start at the visitor center, which is not particularly easy to find. If you have time, fly down to Ofu Island to see the very rugged part of the park and stay in a unique motel, far from the usual traveler.

National Marine Sanctuary of American Samoa

The National Marine Sanctuary of American Samoa (formerly known as Fagatele Bay National Marine Sanctuary), is the largest and most remote of all the national marine sanctuaries. The waters of the sanctuary support some of the greatest diversity of marine life in the national marine sanctuary system, including a wide variety of coral and other invertebrates, fishes, turtles, marine mammals and marine plants. The sanctuary also protects extensive coral reefs, deep water reefs, hydrothermal vent communities, rare marine archaeological resources and encompasses important fishing grounds. Visitors to the sanctuary and locals alike can enjoy recreational activities such as diving, snorkeling, boating, and fishing in sanctuary waters. In 2012, NOAA expanded the sanctuary beyond the original 0.25 Square miles of coral reefs within Fagatele Bay, and now the six areas making up the sanctuary cover over 13,500 square miles of nearshore coral reef and offshore open ocean waters. These additional areas include Fagalua/Fogama'a Bay (the next bay east of Fagatele) on Tutuila Island, as well as areas at Aunu'u, Ta'u and Swains islands, and a marine protected area at Rose Atoll (which is known as Muliava by the Manu'a residents) including the nearby Vailulu'u Seamount.

Two Dollar Beach

Reviewed By Pepperjackm - Texas, United States

If you come by ship, which most do, for a day at the beach this is what's it is all about, two great little beaches connected by the sand isthmus, to another island, well you will see, shade, showers, changing places, drinks, snacks and some beach food, entertainment, music, friendly folks, stuff to buy, Dollars are currency. Arrange for transport from the port and return, bigger the group the more reasonable.
