Diving in Mercherchar

Mecharchar is home to spectacular dive sites located right off its shores, including Lignite, Beluowar, and Ngerchong North and South Coral Gardens. It’s the main island of a group in The Rock Islands, called the Mecherchar Islands. This small but beautiful island is home to two of Palau’s most unique sites: Clam City and Jellyfish Lake. Diving in Clam City, you will see it’s a hidden gem with tridacna clams of every shape, size, and color covering the ground. Diving in the protected lake of Jellyfish Lake, you’ll find a unique phenomenon; you’ll see millions of small, golden jellyfish that have entirely lost their tentacles and, therefore, their sting.
