Pago Pago

Lost in Lush Greenery

The Samoa Islands are one of the most popular destinations in the Pacific Ocean. Their crystal clear water, beaches surrounded by the green of wild nature, and the hospitality of the Samoan people, are the perfect recipe for a dream vacation with MSC World Cruises.

 
Pago Pago is the capital of American Samoa, located on the island of Tutuila, offering a splendor for the eyes thanks to the magnificent mountains and forests that occupy much of the territory.
In the city, you will start off your excursion with the discovery of Samoan culture at the Jean P. Haydon Museum, home to several local traditional artifacts. In the western part of the city lies the picturesque farmer's market where you can find colorful fragrant produce, such as delicious exotic fruits.
 
During your holiday with MSC on this beautiful island, you will have the chance to explore the western and southern areas, home to Matafao Park, the highest peak of American Samoa, or Tia Seu Lupe, an ancient star-shaped Polynesian burial mound. You will experience a close encounter with the wonders of this place by admiring Flowerpot Rock, an unusual rock formation, while in the background of the capital city, Mount Alava is an excellent destination for your excursions along the ridge and is the official path to the National Park of American Samoa. Not to be missed is a jump into the water of Leone Falls found in the village of the same name, where there is also a basalt quarry, an important archaeological center of the country. Many of the objects and artifacts found in and around the Pacific Rim were carved out of the stone extracted from this quarry.
 
There will also be moments of relaxation during your MSC cruise on one of the beautiful beaches of Pago Pago, the Alega Beach, an ideal spot for snorkeling, and the super-white Tula Beach.

    Forget the stress and bustle of everyday life. Just one good reason for a holiday in Samoa. Located in the Pacific Ocean, American Samoa is an archipelago in the region of Oceania, with unspoiled beaches and crystal clear waters, as well as dense, lush vegetation, interspersed with rivers flowing into lakes and spectacular waterfalls.

    American Samoa, located in the East, is part of the United States and is right next to Western Samoa, which was first a German colony and now an Independent State. These wonders of nature are part of Polynesia, an area situated between New Zealand, Easter Island and Hawaii.

    The emerald green of the forests contrasts with the white sandy beaches, which include the spectacular Ofu Beach, perfect for those who want to enjoy nature away from everything and everyone. The capital is Pago Pago, where you can visit the National Park of American Samoa: unspoiled nature dotted with the simple houses of the hospitable local people.
