I believe most of you never know there is a country named Palau (in Palauan language called, “Belau” but officially Republic of Palau) in this whole earth. Located 800 kilometers from East Philippines, Palau is known as one of the most beautiful islands in Micronesia, and the world. Unfortunately, Palau is not as famous as Maldives, Tahiti, Fiji or other islands. However, it is still a recommended amazing tourism destination for beach and ocean lovers. Most of tourists come to Palau are divers because Palau is a Diving paradise for Diving freaks!
What attracts people to come to Palau is the Rock Islands. As it is called, Rock Islands are collection of rounded coral islands raised up from the reef that seems to float above the surface of the water. Most of them are topped with vegetation which makes them look like mushroom. Some of them are small, but many of them are large and have beautiful sandy white beaches decorated with water lily flowers to rest and relax even for overnight stay. The famous beaches around the islands are Ngermeaus Island, Fantasy Island, Ngemelis Island and Ulong Island. An island hopping trip through the islands is extraordinary!
Diving, Snorkeling, Fishing, Island Hoping, Beaching are the main things you can do around Rock Islands. I will share you more information about it in my next entries.
Wondering why I could end up living in this country? Work brought me here. At first I thought it would be a disaster but I was totally wrong. It was a blessing to live in this tiny island :) Hoping to go back there again someday...
