Are you itching for white, sandy beaches, stunningly clear waters, and lush rainforests? Head out of the continental US to American Samoa, five islands located in the heart of the South Pacific Ocean, for a vacation you'll never forget.
American Samoa is an unincorporated territory of the United States, and its remote location makes it the perfect place for a getaway vacation. The National Park of American Samoa has plenty of adventure opportunities - from hikes through the rainforest, long walks on the beach, snorkeling, and scuba diving. You'll be able to explore to your heart's content.
Because of its isolation, you'll need to plan in advance for transportation, accommodations, and activities. Not many tourists come to the islands, so any services or trips you take will have to be chartered. A lot of the time, you might just be asking a local fisherman to take you to a nearby island. Camping is prohibited within the park, and there aren't any campgrounds, so your only options are to stay in a hotel or a rustic beach fale - a thatched hut on the beach. Though the trip might require more effort to plan, your hard work will be rewarded stunning panoramic vistas, endless blue waters, and a one-of-a-kind vacation.
