    The Islands of Palau

    Palau's islands run from north to south, creating a 125-mile-long archipelago. The limestone rock islands are Palau's greatest fame. The rock islands' tops are wider than their bases, creating a mushroom appearance, the result of water erosion. They are covered with thick jungle, home to exotic bird life and fruit bats. With more than 200 of these islands, they provide a maze of magnificent natural charm.

    Often referred to as one of the Seven Wonders of the Diving World and The Marine Life Capital of the Western Pacific, Palau's waters boast sheer drop-offs, marine lakes, dramatic caves and a wealth of marine life.
