Chandelier Cave

This site is a large cave with several “rooms” and underwater tunnels allowing you to swim from room to room. Perfect for adventure-seekers who want to experience the thrill of exploring the unknown. 

German channel

Famous for its manta rays, the German channel offers virtually every sort of tropical marine life to the eager diver. Other than manta rays, divers can see eagle rays, reef sharks and many other species of schooling fish. With the right conditions, this dive spot can also be a great drift dive.

Jellyfish Lake

A must-do when visiting Palau, the Jellyfish lake is a unique experience of being surrounded by hundreds and thousands of non-stinging jellyfish.

Blue Hole/Blue Corner

The two most celebrated dive sites in Palau are known for their abundance of marine life. Blue Corner is situated on a current-swept corner of a steep drop-off, making it a natural gathering point for reef fish of every description. Within swimming, distance lies Blue Hole, a large cavern with multiple entrances and illuminated by shafts of sunlight from overhead. 

Other dive sites

Other notable Palauan sites include New and Big Drop Offs, Ulong Channel, Peleliu Wall, and Cut, Mandarinfish Lake and WW 2 Japanese shipwrecks Iro and Sata. There’s also a Zero fighter plane in very shallow water, plus countless other reefs and walls.
