Palau Travel Guide

Now a top dive destination, with its four significant islands surrounded by the same reef, the year-round tropical weather in Palau means the diving possibilities here are mind-blowing. With over 16 acclaimed dive sites including Blue Corner, dozens of caves and caverns, and a WWII wreck as well as the incredibly scenic 70-plus uninhabited Rock Islands, those in wet suits better hope that fish is all they encounter here, with a significant number of American aircraft and their crews having been shot down in Palau during WWII. Lying just 800kms east of the Philippines, the Pacific island nation can be accessed by air by those who have the spare dosh to enjoy a comfortable stay at Koror resort.
