Comprised of more than two hundred tropical islands Palau is home to more than one thousand five hundred species of fish and seven hundred different corals. The coral reefs are one of the Seven Underwater Wonders of the World.

Palau is an untouched paradise. Splendid bays are surrounded by forested cliffs beneath which talcum sand and the palest blue water meet. Little limestone islands are scattered throughout the surrounding seas, giving it an otherworldly charm.

Here you can swim with turtles and manta rays or in a landlocked lake filled with jellyfish that don’t sting.


Palau saw some of the bloodiest battles of World War Two and today remnants of the war are still scattered all over the islands, and beneath the water tropical fish play in the wrecks of old ships and planes.
