The island of Ofu in the Manuâ€™a Islands is where the visitor will find some of the most pristine and breathtaking scenery in American Samoa, which will rival anywhere in the South Pacific. A portion of the islandâ€™s shoreline and fringing reef is protected within the boundaries of the National Park.
The beaches are made up of fine coral sand that is ideal for strolling for long periods of time. The coral communities on Ofu are some of the prettiest in the South Pacific, providing a great place to snorkel in the protected backwaters of the reef. All snorkeling gear must be brought from neighboring Tutuila, and special rules apply for this semi-secluded area of the National Park.
The dock on Ofu island is small; larger vessels will have to moor a short distance away from the reef and then ferry passengers over to shore.
