The main island of Koror, is a home for 70% of Palauans. Spread across other islands there’s a variety of resorts, all in Palauan traditional style where guests can enjoy best of the local foods overlooking pristine bays filled with a variety of corals, clams, and fishes.

Spectacular underwater life invites tourists from around the world to experience unusual sights for snorkeling & deep sea diving. If you prefer to stay above the water there’s always the popular canoeing, in this case around the amazing small lush islets, or trying out Spearfishing like the locals do it.
