10 days / 9 nights Ex Brisbane
The Republic of Palau is Micronesia's western most archipelago in the Caroline Islands chain. The tightly clustered Palau archipelago, consists of eight principal islands and more than 250 smaller ones covering an area of 459 square kilometres. Palau is the home to one of the world's unique phenomena, the Rock Islands. The Rock Islands are Palau's crowning glory. More than 200 of these jungle-topped knobs of limestone dot the waters for a 20 mile (35km) stretch south of Koror. Their bases, having been worn away by tidal action and grazing sea creatures, are narrower than their tops, causing them to look like emerald-hued mushrooms rising from the turquoise sea. Another phenomenon is Jellyfish Lake where you can snorkel in the clear water lake filled with nearly two million jellyfish. Here the salt water from the ocean seeps through fissures in the limestone into the lake, whilst other marine life is kept out. Due to a lack of predators the jellyfish have evolved to a point of having no ability to sting. Palau has three ocean currents converging in its waters to bring in some of the most varied and dazzling marine life in the world. Palau is also blessed with a rich diversity of plants & birdlife. Soft sand beaches, tropical rainforest, spectacular waterfalls and hidden lakes offer a splendid backdrop to Palau's fascinating geological formations, significant archaeological sites and world renown underwater wonders. Many visitors to Palau arrive on United Airlines by way of daily scheduled flights from Guam (the gateway to Micronesia). United airlines also have connections from Manila, via Guam to Palau.
