Palau

As one of the smallest countries in the world, Palau is often overlooked by travellers. But those who do make the effort to visit this beautiful destination are rewarded with pristine beaches, crystal-clear waters, and unspoilt jungle landscapes. Here are some of the natural highlights that make Palau so special:

The Rock Islands: These small islets, scattered across the Pacific Ocean, are a must-see for any visitor to Palau. With their jagged cliffs and verdant rainforest, they are a stunning sight to behold.

The Jellyfish Lake: This saltwater lake is home to millions of harmless jellyfish, which glow in the dark thanks to Bioluminescent plankton. It's definitely a sight you won't forget!

The coral reefs: Palau is known for its world-famous coral reefs, which are among the most diverse and beautiful in the world. Snorkelling and diving here are an absolute must!

The rainforest: With its towering trees and tangled undergrowth, Palau's rainforest is a true jungle paradise. Hiking through it is a wonderful way to experience the island's natural beauty.

So if you're looking for an exotic destination with stunning natural scenery, Palau is definitely worth considering.
