American Samoa Tourism Video

For your next trip, why not travel to the unspoiled beauty that is the American Samoa? A South Pacific Polynesian paradise, the Samoan culture is tropical beauty which is little known midway between New Zealand and Hawaii. Here you can enjoy a 2,000 year old culture of the natives which continues to flourish in this new millennium. When you visit this island you will enjoy a natural, quiet and secluded beach location that is a part of the United States that you will not soon forget.

Cultural and linguistic evidence show that the first inhabitants here may have come from the West – perhaps by way of Vanuatu, Fiji, Indonesia and Tonga, as far as the eastern tip of Tutuila by the village today of Tula around 600 B.C. Then there maybe have been at least eight hundred years of history with Tonga and Fiji before the islands were discovered by Jacob Roggeveen, a Dutch explorer, in 1722. John Williams introduced Christianity to the islands and the top chiefs adopted Christianity. The Samoans were sending missionaries to Melanesia within forty years.

If you want to see America in a different light, the beautiful Samoan islands are definitely the place to go. There is plenty to do here including uncrowded diving with all kinds of fish to see, plus turtles, sharks and eels, not to mention the gorgeous coral. There are great dive spots in both of the great cities Upolu and Savai’i, and they have around nine hundred different species of fish including stingrays, spinner dolphins and whales.

If you are looking to take your day at leisure you can of course enjoy the beautiful beaches or even the Samoan spas. Samoa is blessed with all kinds of therapeutic plants, and the taulasea, the traditional healers, have for a long time used their bark, juice, roots and leaves to help treat all kinds of ailments.  For the more adventurous types you can try your hand at surfing in Upolu or Savai’i, as they have surf breaks with good swells all year round. If you are really looking for a unique experience, you can even swim with green sea turtles at the wetland sanctuary at Savai’i’s Satoalepai village.

Sightseeing here is a popular choice on this tropical paradise that is so stunningly beautiful you will not get tired of taking it in any time soon. The national parks here work to preserve and protect the coral reefs, tropical rainforests, fruit bats and the Samoan culture. You can learn more about the intriguing Samoan culture at its state parks, and understand more about the people who live there.

For an animal encounter with a unique twist, head to the wetlands sanctuary at Savaii’s Satoalepai village and take the plunge with half a dozen or more green turtles.  These majestic prehistoric creatures have been hunted for years and years and as a result they are now endangered. Fortunately, the good people of Satoalepai have made it their business to give the turtles a new lease of life. They raise them in a part fresh, part-salt water pool and once they’re grown up, they release them back into the ocean, where they prepare for ‘parenthood’

The combination of tropical climate and fertile soil make Samoa the perfect breeding ground for rainforests and other lush landscapes (mangrove swamps, marshes…), which are all abuzz with native wildlife, such as seabirds, skinks, flying foxes, geckos, as well as a plethora of unique flora.

The coastline is a wonder in itself, with sparkling white sand beaches, in some places stretching for miles, and here and there are walls of sheer cliffs that drop straight into the Pacific.  And beyond the beaches out into the blue lagoons are scattered the rest of the islands that make up the Samoa archipelago, some inhabited, others with only natures wildlife, protected by the fringing coral reef that keep the powerful force of the Pacific Ocean at bay.
