One of the most idyllic places on earth. Unspoiled, reefs not destroyed by hurricanes because they are protected and not overrun with tourists.

Great snorkeling spot. Our diving friends rave about the site. Plenty of WWII history and local Palauan culture. A fantastic destination.

Resorts have snorkel guides and options. It's easy to book through your hotel. Snorkeling is great! You can do it right out front of the resort at Palau Pacific. But any hotel can arrange it for you.
