Don’t leave Palau without experiencing the Jellyfish Lake. A 45-minute boat ride from the town of Koror, the landlocked lake is filled with millions of stingless jellyfish. This isolated lake became the perfect setting for a massive jellyfish evolution, which some speculate were trapped in the lake 12,000 years ago after a rise in sea levels post-Ice Age. Feeding on quick-growing algae and with no great predators to protect themselves from, the jellyfish now completely packed the small lake. Although, the jellyfishes do have stingers, they are too small to be felt by humans upon contact.
Rock Islands and Milky Way
In 2012, Rock Islands Southern Lagoon have been inscribed on UNESCO’s world Heritage List. It covers 100,200 hectares of land span and 445 uninhabited limestone islands of volcanic origin. Many of these display unique mushroom-like shapes found in turquoise lagoons surrounded by coral reefs. The Milky Way, located in the rock islands of this Micronesian country, is known for its therapeutic properties. Locals claim that bathing in the white limestone mud found on the waters floor will make you look younger. Experience the Milky Way by having a natural white sulfuric mud bath located within a creamy blue colored sea of Palau's Rock Islands. Taking a boat tour is the most convenient way to get there and scheduled everyday departing from our hotel’s private dock.
