General Palau Information
Palau is located just north of the equator, 900 miles southwest of Guam and 400 miles south of Yap, at the westernmost edge of Micronesia. Palau is north of New Guinea and east of the Philippines. The country consists of about 400 islands, 9 of which are inhabited. Most of the islands lie within in a giant blue lagoon, protected by spectacular coral reefs and coral walls. Warm, clear, tropical water and abundant sea life make Palau a diver’s paradise.
Palau is also very scenic above the water, with azure lagoons and white sandy beaches. The rock islands, mushroom shaped limestone formations covered in rainforest foliage and tropical flowers, provide unparalleled beauty. The wildlife is unique. There are many species of rare birds, flying fruit bats, and exotic lizards.
