Things To Do
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).
Did You Know?
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.
