classic palau

Blue Corner:

This is perhaps the most famous dive site in Palau with steep walls and an abundance of fish life. Expect to experience full-throttle currents and plenty of pelagic action. Snappers, jacks, and triggerfish schools roam around at this V-shaped plateau pointing out into the Philippine Sea. It is very common to spot oceanic predators like sailfish, dolphins, whales, and reef sharks due to the strong currents and nutrient-rich conditions.

Blue Hole:

Several holes at 16 feet/5 meters mark the entry point into the cavern, which drops to 120 feet/35 meters. Inside the Blue Hole, divers exit by the “window” and do a drift dive, finding their way to the Blue Corner dive site. It is always important to watch your depth and bottom time inside the cavern.

German Channel:

Dredged by Germans miners, this channel connects the inner lagoon with the open ocean. Nowadays, the currents going through the channel help get nutrients in, inviting manta rays and large pelagics in from the open ocean, and the shallow reefs are home to a wide variety of macro life.

Peleliu Express:

Peleliu Express is one of the deepest and most beautiful dive sites in Palau. This dive site is an advanced drift dive site. A large variety of marine life finds shelter in the deep canyons, crevices, and caves that cut into the wall. The vertical walls are covered with corals and sponges, attracting colorful butterfly and angelfish, as well as turtles. It is one of the best spots to experience countless sharks and dolphins.

Ulong Channel:

This breathtaking drift dive is unique to the archipelago. Numerous coral heads and coral formations decorate the sandy bottom of this channel. You are sure to find grey reef sharks, stingrays, snappers, barracuda, and other pelagics. This is one of the region’s best dive sites to search for macro subjects, as well as a prime location for watching triggerfish spawning between April and July. Chandelier Cave: A chain of cave systems made up of five separate, connecting chambers with air pockets. Its dramatic stalactites and stalagmites formed, resembling glittering chandeliers. Visiting the site just before sunset might be the opportunity to spot some mandarin fishes or crabs on sponges.

Siaes Tunnel:

This deep underwater cavern offers divers an awesome experience as they dive through a large naturally-lit tunnel. There are also white-tip reef sharks and stingrays resting on the sandy bottom of the cavern. Currents can get strong here and the use of reef hook and safety marker buoy is mandatory.

Turtle Cove:

The vertical reef wall, with plenty of small caves, arches, ledges, and reef sharks roaming around, is great for an introductory dive. On the top reef is a mini blue hole that forms a large cavern. The reef extends out to a plateau from and around Ngercheu Island. Different species of nudibranchs and schooling fish patrol the reef.


Although not a dive, Palau’s Jellyfish Lake is a natural phenomenon and a must-do. The land-locked saltwater lake contains two species of jellyfish that have evolved away from their stingers in the absence of predators. Snorkelers can swim among thousands of pulsating jellyfish without the worry of any pain. Special guidelines are required for snorkeling and swimming in Jellyfish Lake. No scuba diving is permitted.

Getting to Palau can be a bit tricky. You will need to fly into Roman Tmetuchl International Airport (ROR) via Guam, Australia, Taipei, or Manilla. It is the remoteness of Palau that makes it such a special destination.
