This short, fairly flat trail leads to a rough and rocky beach with views of the coastline and Pola Island. Due to unfriendly dogs, please drive past the last house at the end of the paved road in Vatia Village. This rough section of road will lead you to three exhibits and the trailhead.

Unfriendly dogs can be a big challenge in American Samoa, so we drove past the last house. We pulled over a bit too early to park because the map indicated that we were already about half way down the trail. There is amole parking where the three informational signs. The beach had large rocks so it would be challenging without appropriate footwear. There were lovely views of Pola Island were a very short walk from the parking area. We met the high talking chief on the beach who warned us not to get too close to the water due to strong waves and currents.

Drove past the house to what was probably not a pull-out for cars. Rocky walk to a few informational signs put up by the park. Short walk to the rocky beach afterwards. Better views looking back while on the road.

Short walk to the water’s edge where waves crash hard against the shoreline. No problems with dogs on the way in and a few barked as we left. Just stay off their property and motion like you are picking up a rock to throw at them and they will keep their distance. 5/9/18
