Because the park is relatively new and remotely located, you will not find the usual facilities of parks on the mainland. Instead, with a bit of explorer's spirit, you can discover secluded villages, observe tropical forest plants and wildlife, snorkel coral reefs, and explore the magnificent island and sea vistas.

If interested in local Samoan culture, consider staying with a local family rather than a hotel (check out the park's homestay program).

Lobster, shrimp, fish, and breadfruit—a sumptuous meal of local village subsistence resources

The national park allows subsistence fishing and farming to Samoans (the parklands are theirs. The park land is leased from the villages). This lavish example of a village celebratory feast came from local reef waters.
