Palau is a small group of islands in the western Pacific that let travellers enjoy a taste of tropical paradise with vibrant scenery on land and below the waves offshore. The Rock Islands in particular are covered in verdant forests with the green of the leaves contrasting strongly with the blue colour of the surrounding water. Many local restaurants take full advantage of the landscape as well, putting diners right next to breathtaking views of the surrounding scenery.

Travellers looking for adventures beneath the waves will find some of the greatest dive spots in Oceania here. Blue Corner is particularly iconic, along with German Channel and Blue Holes. Visitors often dive in the same area more than once, as the experience is different each time. One of the more odd places among the islands is Jellyfish Lake. This is a lake filled with jellyfish, but it’s perfectly safe. Because the jellyfish faced no predators, they evolved without the need for stingers.
