Top Attractions in Koror Island
What travellers are saying
- 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.Written 30 August 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- 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.Written 28 October 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- 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 BureauWritten 22 April 2020This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

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.Written 22 April 2020
- 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.Written 18 December 2019
- 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.Written 15 May 2020
- you see here the history of the ancient inhabitants of Palau what is very very diferent from todays life afterall the influences during the past more than hundred zearWritten 9 January 2020
- 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.Written 13 December 2019
- Unforgettable experience. We were with Sam't Tours and they knew exactly when we should be at German Channel to enjoy Manta Rays.. and there were a lot of them! They would get really close with their mouth wide open... amazing schools of fish that you cannot see through. It is a must see and must dive. We were several times at German Channel during out 10 day trip and every time it was great success.Written 28 December 2019
- 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.Written 13 December 2019
- 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.Written 1 September 2018
- 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.Written 24 August 2019
- Such a nice shop. Well appointed with nice lighting and displays. On the main road in a good location. Recommend for a browse of the art and to buy souvenirs.Written 7 February 2020
- Short self walking tour of outside/open aquarium having educational zones of sea life nicely set up for the tourist. Cost is $10 for adult with kids being less.Written 26 January 2020
- 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.Written 26 January 2020
