    The jellyfish lake is about 10-15 minutes walk from the boat ramp, up and down a steep hill with steps and rope to hold on. I did it using my crocs closed toe sandal with backstrap. it was a lot of fun swimming with sun and moon jellyfish. You need to hike with your snorkeling gear and any camera equipment so a mesh bag is a good idea. Our group spent 1.5 hours on the lake. We must use eco friendly sunblock that is not harmful for the jellyfish.

    Before I start my review I recommend calling Captain John for a private charter. He is cheaper than all the other companies and is flexible with time. (680) 778-7333.

    Anyways....

    You have to come here if visiting Palau. This place is included with most tours but it was a must stop on my list. Although you don't need to spend a bunch of time here you do need to pay it a visit. The mud is soft and feels nice on the skin. Plus you can get creative and draw on each other of yourself with it. It's located in a beautiful lagoon where you can swim for a while.

    Seeing the rock islands is guaranteed if you are going to anywhere such as milky way, diving, snorkeling, or jellyfish lake.

    They are a string of beautiful islands that you wiz past on a boat when you are traveling to any of your destinations.

    As in all my other reviews I recommend using Captain John for a private charter since he is cheaper than the tour companies and is cognizable on what you want. (680) 778-7333. We found his information through the Palau Visitors Bureau

    It is a sand bar where you can walk along. It is more picturesque from the above. It is also might not be visible during the tide.

    A cool hike leading to an amazing waterfall. Me and my gf were the only people there. Worth the short 20-30 min trek. I recommend bringing shoes with some grip as you have to cross a shallow river bed with slipper rocks.

    If your in Palau you really should boat through the Rock Islands, they're beautiful! I took some video footage as we boated through natural rock arches and cruised over turquoise water.

    Few people visit this beautiful atoll, 50 km north of the main island. It takes an hour by car and another hour by boat to reach Kayangel island where there is a tiny community of about 100 souls.

    Good introduction to the culture and history of Palau, the museum is visited in under an hour and presents artifacts on early dwellers and the different colonial periods, as well as about modern history and marine conservation milestones.

    In my opinion, best to rent a car for $45 a day versus taking a tour bus. By taking a car one can then stop at the waterfall and several other historical sites and scenic views and save a bunch of money without a bunch of people on a timeline.

    Okay, the rocks popping out of the ground similar to rocks of Stonehenge stuck in the ground, or the Wheel of Giants (5000 yrs. older then Stonehenge) on the ground in the Middle East are of historical and cultural significance to residents. As such it’s worth a small about of time to see them and they are located on the northeast end of the big island approximately 60 kilometers north from Koror central.

    They may not look like much, but when connecting the many ancient historical stone monoliths around the world says a lot about culture and expression relative to humans.

    It can be a moving experience if one has some historical background or some initial investigation prior to viewing them, which may give some insight and parallels of what we today consider important, and by extension that which is represented in skyscrapers touching the sky.

    We didn't swim with the dolphins but we got to see quite a few dolphins in a close proximity. We were told that this is a research site for conservation as opposed to training dolphins for touristic purposes.

    I saw Mandarin Lake as part of a kayak tour. The Mandarin fish are difficult to spot but there are so many fish to look at if you can't find them. The visibility is amazing for snorkeling.

    They have this street market open every Friday that is a payday . Right before Xmas they decorate it with Xmas lights . We went looking for local food and local trinkets . There was plenty of food but a word of caution , look where you buy your food . Some of the food sellers will put the food in chafing trays but when you look under they are not heated . Bacteria grows is not kept hot so we only would buy food we knew was served hot . Many of the food booths are run by local restaurants, all the food we had was good . The tables where they sold there wares were few and mainly sold stuff you could buy at any gift store but some things are at a lower price . Everything is under cover so if it rains you will be fine
