Palau, often called as the 'Black Island,' is a nation located in the Pacific Ocean. Since its independence, the nation has depended on the industries of agriculture and fishing to support its national necessities. But other than those two, Palau has also maximized its natural beauty, which therefore made tourism one of the country's primary income generators.
Since it is an archipelago, Palau's main attraction is its beaches. A spectacle of the vast Pacific Ocean is readily available to tourists. Aside from strolling along white sand shores and sunbathing under the tropical sun, Palau beaches allow visitors to enjoy water activities. The Rock Islands provide the best diving and snorkelling experience with the presence of Blue Hole, Blue Corner and the famous Jellyfish Lake on the area. Surfing, kayaking and canoeing are also possible in the island.
Other than enjoying the deep, different islands in Palau also expose tourists to the rich history of the country. Back to the World War II era, the bloodiest battles of the Pacific were fought in the islands of Palau. To commemorate the bravery of those who offered their lives for independence, war museums were set up in the islands of Angaur and Peleliu.
In Koror, different cultural museums explaining the traditions and ways of living of the Palauan people are erected. It is one of the most visited areas for tourism so it gives home to different shopping malls, restaurants and hotels in Palau. Top Palau hotels include Palasia Hotel and Palau Royal Resort.
