American Samoa Travel Guide
American Samoa is truly an off-the-beaten-track destination—a visit to this island territory with a population of about 70,000 carries full bragging rights. The very name of the capital, Pago Pago, conjures up images of South Seas types, like Somerset Maugham, sitting on bar stools under whirring ceiling fans. Dominated by Rainmaker Mountain and sitting on a beautiful harbor, Pago Pago lies within easy reach of isolated beaches, rocky islands, and authentic villages. The National Park of American Samoa has easy walking trails with sweeping views, and the snorkeling is magnificent in Fagetele Bay Marine Park.
