'Au'asi is a village in the east of Tutuila Island, American Samoa. One of the island's more populous villages, it is located on the south coast, close to the eastern tip of the island and to the smaller offshore island of Aunu'u.

Above the village is a waterfall known as ‘Au’asi Falls, this can be visited by following the stream in ‘Au’asi for about 30 minutes. It is particularly impressive after heavy rain.[1]
