Off the southeast shore of Tutuila is the small island of Aunuâ€™u. A thirty-minute boat ride (US$2) from the village of Auâ€™asi takes you out to this quiet little island where there are no cars and no buses. One of the most significant attractions on this island, other than its beautiful clean beaches, are the quicksand lakes located at Pala Lake.
While the island offers clean sandy beaches, the southern coast of the island is lined with sea cliffs and thick brush. Visitors may also want to see Maâ€™amaâ€™a Cove on the east side of the island and the taro swamp which is located on the other side of the village.
A guided three-hour walk/hike around the island village may be arranged through Tisa Faâ€™amuli. Tours are available most days of the week. On account of religious observances, tours are not offered on Sundays
