Manono, Apolima and Nuulopa Cultural Landscape is part of the Tentative list of Samoa in order to qualify for inclusion in the World Heritage List.

Manono, Apolima, and Nuulopa Cultural Landscape is a series of three volcanic islands whose isolation from the two main islands of Samoa has allowed the three islands to maintain a traditional way of life for approximately 3000 years. Manono Island is covered with plantations and traditional villages, and, together with Apolima Island, has served in a peacekeeping role as an arbitrator between competing factions in Samoa. Nuulopa Island is home to the cemetery for the high chiefs of Manono, who are greatly respected in Samoa.
