Blunts Point

Road 001, Utulei, Eastern District, American Samoa

Located on the western end of Pago Pago Harbor, overlooking the harbor entrance, you’ll find two six-inch naval guns that were originally placed here by the U.S. Marines after the attack on Pearl Harbor to fortify the strategic base in American Samoa. The guns are mounted in concrete bases, and the lower gun is accessible by a hiking trail. Below the emplacement there is a magazine built into the hillside.
