American Samoa

Last Updated: 24 December 2017
The only United States territory in the Southern hemisphere is a group of ten Polynesian islands, American Samoa. These tropical islands are blessed with natural splendour seldom seen in such abundance. Here densely forested slopes drop into the sparkling blue water of the South Pacific Ocean. The National Park, preserving the verdant primeval rain forests forms a large portion of three of the islands.

Vibrant coral reefs teeming with colorful fish surround the islands. Jagged hills form a dark backdrop to the white sand beaches. Mountain ranges clad in tropical forests loom over plunging waterfalls.
