Palau is located in Micronesia is the west of the Pacific ocean and is made up of around 500 islands.
Palau is known for its beautiful nature amazing underwater world and its history in WWII.
Palau offers one of the most unique experiences in the world. Like many of its neighboring countries Palau has a lot to offer under the beautiful waters but nothing quite like swimming in a lake full of jellyfish and living to tell the tale. These golden jellyfish have lost enough of their sting that they are no longer harmful to humans due to a lack of predators in the lake.
If animals on land are more up your street then take a trip to Angaur island where you will find many well preserved WWII relics. The monkeys can no be found anywhere else in Palau.
