ʻAuʻasi 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 Aunuʻu. It is located in Saʻole County.

Above the village is a waterfall known as ʻAuʻasi Falls. This can be visited by following the stream in ʻAuʻasi for about 30 minutes. It is particularly impressive after heavy rain.[1]

Ferries for Aunu'u Island leave from the dock at ʻAuʻasi.
