Palau Quick Travel Guide
With a travel rating of 44%, Palau has over 250 volcanic and coral islands scattered about the seas and is known as the ultimate diver's paradise. The landscape ranges from dense jungle, to white sandy beaches and lagoons that harbor millions of fish. Float over endless beds of colorful coral, the sheer drop-offs at Blue Corner Wall, where sharks and barracuda swim in harmony, and the manta rays that glide along German Channel. There are over 60 wrecks to explore from WWII, like the "Lost Fleet of the Rock Islands", which is covered with marine life and protected from salvagers, to the Bichu Maru and the USS Perry . Schools of fish will swim by at every turn, including snappers, jacks, puffer and parrot fish. When you come back to shore, there will be more aquatic options, like the spectacular Ngardamu Waterfalls and the world famous jellyfish lakes, where you can swim with these nebulous creatures who won't even sting you. If jellyfish are not your thing, visit Dolphins Pacific and swim with the dolphins. For the out of ordinary, dive beneath the Milk Way cove and scoop up some mud from the bottom and rub it all over your body. (They say it's good for your skin.) Do we detect a common theme here? You see, in Palau, it's all about "water"!
