We really wanted to do this excursion and paid for it ahead of time but when we arrived the lake was closed because all the jelly fish were dead so we went to the milky way instead.

I went to visit jelly fish lake 20 years ago and the experience was so surreal and enchanting. Unfortunately due to global warming and pollution, the jelly fish population has dwindled. At one point they even close the lake to visitors. They recently opened it...More

This is obviously a huge attraction because there is a ranger station at the entrance and a fancy walkway to the lake. There is no chance anyone could sneak in. When it rains a lot hopefully it will reopen. No known opening date.

If you plan to visit Palau to visit the Jellyfish Lake you may need to reconsider. Due to the drought and El Nino the lake is now devoid of Jellyfish. Hopefully they will recover. There is still great snorkelling and diving in Palau.

Due to the drought, and too many tourists, the stress on the jellyfish was too much. It is closed to allow the poor critters a break and a chance, we hope, to recover.

Don't hesitate. Palau is amazing. Jellyfish Lake is only a minuscule event in Palau. Very advertised as unusual. Palau has ancient coral of many varieties and colors and an abundance of thousands of tropical fish that... More
