Captivating Palau, your Island Paradise in the Pacific

 An island country located in the western part of the Pacific Ocean, Palau is composed of about 300 islands, all of which are stunning and beautiful. It is a haven for adventurous travelers who will enjoy its magnificent beaches without the usual crowd. It is also the best place to discover amazing underwater wonders, perfect for those who enjoy scuba diving or snorkeling. The Battle of Peleliu, a  World War II battle, is the reason why Palau has numerous battle sites and ruins, attracting  history buffs and war veterans to the islands as well.

Palau is accessible by air travel. The Roman Tmetuchl International Airport, the gateway to Palau, is located in Babeldaob Island. It is connected to Koror Island via the Japan-Palau Friendship Bridge.  As of 2013, Palau’s population was about 21,000 scattered throughout the islands, so you can travel without the usual traffic and crowds.

One of the most popular attractions in Palau is the Rock Islands, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is where you can experience a bunch of activities like swimming with the jellyfish, wall diving, discovering ruins of abandoned stone villages and burial sites, snorkeling, scuba diving, and hiking. You can also visit monuments, battle sites, and war wreckages scattered throughout the islands.  Do stop by the historic 1000 Man Cave where 1000 Japanese soldiers died inside because they refused to surrender.

Don’t forget to bring lots of sunblock. You wouldn’t want to leave your island paradise like a burnt lobster! Enjoy captivating Palau!
