Staff Report: Anthony - Palau (Micronesia)

Many divers have heard of Palau in the context of the stingless Jellyfish, but few UK divers have actually ventured into the Palau waters, so I had few pre-conceptions when the opportunity to visit the islands came up late in 2006.

I was expecting a far more difficult trip over, but the new route through Manila using brand new BAe146 planes (the same as used by the Queen) was a breeze, so I was well rested on arrival in Koror, the capital of Palau.

Wanting to pack in as much as possible, we'd arranged flying visits to many of the islands attractions before doing the diving - else I would have been too tempted by just the diving! For a tiny country I was amazed not just by the number of attractions, but the quality of them...
