Diving in Palau

The Republic of Palau is an archipelago of over 200 stunningly picturesque tropical islands. This country is part of the Micronesia region of the western Pacific Ocean and has most of its 21,000 residents living on the main island of Koror and sharing an interesting history. Palau is a culture-rich country; Philippine migrants initially settled it, and it has been occupied and ruled by Germans, Japanese, and it ended in American hands during WWII; Palau now governs itself as a republic in free association with the United States of America. Diving in the crystalline waters of Palau and around the islands you can still see remnants of the war and impressive shipwrecks.
