Palau, a remote island famous for its drift dives, plentiful sharks, mantas, beautiful walls, colourful reef fish, and wreck dives just to name a few of the diving attractions that make Palau truly one of the best dive spots in the world.
Diving in Palau is in one word “spectacular” It’s the stuff diver’s dreams are made of. Warm, crystal clear water, pristine reefs and drop-offs filled with incredible marine life and you have a 99% chance you will encounter large pelagics, especially sharks and mantas while gliding over the coral reefs of Palau.
If you are lucky, you might even encounter some of the rarer creatures like silvertip sharks, hammerheads or even the elusive dugong.
You will for sure find pristine reefs teeming with life and a generous smattering of amazing WW II wrecks, as well as dive sites where you can encounter strange critters, like frogfish and Mandarin fish.
According to scuba diving magazine, Palau is in the top 3 of best dive destinations in the world. CNN even tipped Palau as a must-see destination for 2022.
The main reason why scuba divers from all over the world come to explore diving in Palau is because of its famous dive sites, healthy coral reefs and abundance of marine life including lots of sharks.
The main reason why you will see so many sharks is that the underwater ecosystems of Palau are so healthy. And that is only so because Palau has challenged the world with its stance on marine protection.
In 2009 Palau created the world’s first shark sanctuary, protecting over 135 Western Pacific shark species.
To give you an idea NOAA says that Palau’s underwater world is blessed with
- 300 species of soft corals
- 1400 species of reef fishes
- 7 out of 9 of the world’s species of giant clams,
- The world’s most isolated colony of dugongs (a relative of the sea cow)
Micronesia’s only saltwater crocodiles.
And to top that off Palau has the largest undisturbed forest and largest freshwater lake a.k.a Jellyfish lake in Micronesia, and 70 unique marine lakes.
