Republic of Palau
Comprising no fewer than 500 tropical islands, Palau has been voted the number-one Underwater Wonder of the World. It is home to an estimated 21,000 people and approximately 1,400 fish species, 600 species of coral, and 7 species of giant clams.
Daily flights direct from Guam make Palau a convenient destination on your Micronesian tour.
Visitors to Palau can enjoy kayaking, fishing, jet-skiing, sports fishing, and even snorkeling among the golden jellyfish at Jellyfish Lake. If more adventure is on your itinerary, try out zip lines, all-terrain vehicle tours, or a cruise on the Jungle River Boat to round out your stay.
World-class natural features include the Rock Islands of Palau, which have been designated a World Heritage Site by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization.
Dive at Blue Hole, Big Drop Off, Ulong Channel, Peleliu Express or German Channel, to name just a few of the popular sites. And don't forget to dry off in time to check out Palau's museums and ruins, and sample a dish of fruit bat soup!
In addition to flights from Guam, Palau can be accessed via a variety of airlines and airports in Asia and beyond.
