Palau, located between Guam, The Philippines and Papua New Guinea, is a popular tourist destination for scuba divers in the main. Palau is a 640km long archipelago that is encased by one of the world’s greatest concentrations of corals, fish and other marine life. Divers from all over the world come to see some of the world’s most spectacular snorkelling and diving locations supported by a well-developed diving infrastructure, with numerous operators offering a wide choice of facilities, including live-aboard dive tours to more remote dive sites and areas.
However, you don't have to get in the water to enjoy the island of Palau. On land Palau hosts rich colourful flora and fauna: exotic birds, crocodiles and orchids sprout profusely throughout the island. The Palauan archipelago is incredibly diverse, encompassing the polyglot state of Koror (the marvellous Rock Islands), Micronesia's second-largest island, Babeldaob (the land that Pacific standard time forgot), Peleliu, Angaur (the coral atolls of Kayangel and Ngeruangel) and the remote SW Islands.
