Manu'a Islands/American Samoa

Introducing Manu'a Islands

Anchored about 100km to the east of Tutuila are three of the most remote and beautiful islands you could hope to encounter in the Pacific. Ofu, Olosega and Ta'u may be separate islands, but their environments all share the same marvellous characteristics: enormous cliffs sheltering sea-bird colonies; expired volcanic cones; undisturbed beaches that flow into lagoons stocked with a brilliant array of coral; and a sense of timelessness that makes watches completely redundant. The Manu'a Islands make the laid-back environs of Tutuila seem just about chaotic by comparison, so when you visit, pack plenty of extra reading material and a willingness to fall asleep in the middle of the day.
