Vatia village
Vatia village, at the foot of Pola Ridge and surrounded by the national park, offers Homestay opportunities.
There is the chance that you may experience disappointments. These may be due to living arrangements, unmet expectations, language difficulties, cultural differences, or to unpredictable changes in the weather. The national park is not responsible for conflicts, accidents, sickness, or the weather, and cannot be associated with any payments for accommodations and services. The national park does request suggestions from visitors that participate in this program so that we can continue to improve it.

If you have questions, please email us about this new and exciting association between Samoan villages, the national park, and park visitors.

A humpback whale breaches almost entirely out of the water

During the warm months of the southern hemisphere, Samoa’s humpback whales feed in the rich Antarctica waters, 3,200 miles to the south. When Antarctic's bitter winter sets in, humpbacks seek warmer waters, migrating northward, towards Australia and Tonga. At least some migrate onward to Samoa.
