Ofu Island - Manua group, Ameican Samoa
« on: January 26, 2009, 07:31:38 AM »
Ofu Island    
The island of Ofu in the Manu’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 island’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.
