American Samoa, as its name suggests, is an American territory in the South Pacific. Consisting of seven islands, Tutuila is the largest and is home to the capital city Pago Pago. The capital remains a traditional fishing town in a natural harbour, and is surrounded by volcanic peaks, including Rainmaker Mountain. The islands of American Samoa are home to many beautiful towns and villages, as well as tropical rainforests and lush woodland.
Travel Health Information
Travelling to American Samoa is comparatively unrestricted as citizens of many Western countries do not need a visa to gain entry to the country. Direct flights to/from Hawaii and Samoa are available from Pago Pago International Airport, and wider international connections are available from those locations. American Samoa may not be the easiest destination to travel to for many tourists, the idyllic scenery and the idea of being on a forgotten island is well worth the journey.
