American Samoa Map

American Samoa Map

American Samoa is a small group of five volcanic islands and two coral atolls located in the South Pacific Ocean about 3,700 km (2,298 mi) southwest of Honolulu and 2,575 km (2,220 mi) northeast of New Zealand. The principal island is Tutuila while the other islands are the Aunu'u, Tau, Ofu, Olosega, Swains island and the small isolated atoll of Rose Island.

Capital

Pago Pago (Tutuila) is capital of American Samoa. It is a rather seedy place with its small presence being dominated by two large tuna canning factories. Pollution of the stunning harbour has recently been addressed and a conscious National clear up campaign has helped its image. The town retains its clapboard buildings and red light district so romantically written about by Somerset Maughan in his book Rain.
