Ofu and Olosega

Wonder Type: Natural
Country: American Samoa
Ofu and Olosega are parts of a volcanic doublet in the Manu'a Group of the Samoan Islands—part of American Samoa. They are geographic volcanic remnants separated by the narrow 137-meter-wide (449-foot) Asaga strait, a natural bridge of shallow coral reef. Before 1970, one had to wade between the two islands at low tide; now a single-lane road bridge over the strait connects villages on Ofu island with those on Olosega. [More Details]
