As the name suggests, the national park is located in American Samoa. It receives almost 2000 visitors annually and is a national park in the southern Pacific with an area of 36 km². The special thing about the National Park of American Samoa is that it is spread over three islands. Tutuila, Ofu, and Ta’u are the home islands of American Samoa National Park. This was founded on October 31, 1988 and offers very special impressions for its visitors.
Experience and relaxation in one
Visiting American Samoa National Park is almost like a vacation. Since the park is located in the Pacific, you will find coral reefs, rainforests and wonderful white sandy beaches. So if you would like to hike, or would like to see the enchanting underwater world of the Pacific, you can also snorkel and dive here. Colorful fish, great corals and incredibly clear water are ideal for water sports in the American Samoa National Park.
In addition to 900 different species of fish and over 200 species of coral, you can also find fruit bats, the Pacific boa and of course sea turtles here in the American Samoa National Park. There is also a lot to do for bird watchers. Over 35 different bird species are at home here.
The main goal of the park is to preserve the protection of its really special natural treasures. On October 31, 1988, the National Park Service took over the administration.
Since then, the park has welcomed its guests to the area of Tutuila, which is the largest island. If you want, you can even travel to the island by car. If you want to travel to Ofu, you have to do so by small plane. These start from Tutuila and you can also spend the night in Ofu and Asaga if you want. You can also stay overnight on Ta’u. This part of the American Samoa National Park can only be reached by flight.
Overnight stays are often used here. The view over the National Park of American Samoa from a range of hills should not be missed.
Water fun, adventure world and nature on the finest sandy beach. You can only experience that in the National Park of American Samoa.
