Palau is a large atoll with 200 islands of all sizes -- a geometric pattern of waterways, canals, small lagoons, garden-sized inlets and secluded beaches.  Only a few degrees above the equator, air temperatures don't vary much.  Water temperatures begin at about 82°F at the surface and drop only two degrees at depth.  Visibility can be estimated at 125-200 feet on a regular basis.

Palau is renown for it's spectacular diving, but there is much more to see and do. Try some above water sports such as kayaking, water skiing, or jet skiing. Hike or off-road to see the ancient stone faces, Yapese money, or historic Abai, the meeting house of old.
