The three small islands of the Manu'a Group, 100 km east of Tutuila, offer spellbinding scenery in a quiet village environment. Ta'u is the territory's most traditional island, but the beaches are far better and more numerous on Ofu and Olosega. All three islands feature stimulating hiking possibilities and an opportunity for the adventurer to escape the rat race on Tutuila.
Although a couple of small guesthouses are available, few tourists make it to Manu'a. The air service from Tutuila is irregular and you need to book early, as local commuters fill the flights. Remember that telephone calls from Tutuila to the Manu'a Group cost only US$.25 each, so don't hesitate to call ahead to check on accommodations.
