Palau Yacht Charter
The Milky Way on Koror Island to the south of Palau has beautiful milky turquoise waters for swimming, kayaking and snorkelling. The white mud can be used as a natural spa treatment, and once applied visitors can relax and dry off in the sunshine before removing it all with a dip into the warm water to compare the results.
One of its greatest charms is the stingless jellyfish lake: Located a short cruise south of Palau within the Rock Islands archipelago, this land-locked marine lake is just a 10 minutes height up a hill from the shores.
There are many other fantastic experiences to be had with wildlife in the open water: Gear up to drift dive at the magnificent 'Blue Corner', where sea wrasse, neon-coloured anthias and butterflyfish cruise by as you watch sea turtles and sharks swimming around the reef. Swim through the Chandelier Caves and the Siaes Tunnel, take in the beautiful blue holes of Ngemelis and drift again with the Peleliu Express.
Fishing enthusiasts will also have some amazing spots and impressive pelagic species to occupy the afternoons. Giant trevally, sailfish tuna, wahoo and blue marlin are just some of the possibilities you can catch and have served up for lunch, prepared by your expert on board chef.
Spend some time on land and among the lush forest on a trek to the Ngardmau Waterfalls, and learn about the local past and present at the Belau National Museum, where crafts and relics are placed within the stunning traditional buildings.
Koror is the largest town among the islands and has plenty of restaurants, cafes and bars for dining and entertainment, and the shops offer boutique shopping, locally made art and traditional markets for authentic mementos of your Palau yacht charter.
The stone monoliths are ancient landmarks that can be visited within a morning, leaving the rest of the day free for sunbathing on the golden sand beaches or for a tour to spot and photograph the local wildlife: Hawksbill and green turtles can be sighted on the beaches, and three other turtle species pass through Micronesian waters. The bird life is just as alluring with endemic species like the Palauan flycatcher a memorable addition to your holiday snaps.
Visitors interested in WWII history will find plenty of wrecks of various shapes, sizes and depths surrounding Palau and in the wider Micronesia cruising grounds, and Koror has dedicated museums worth a look.
Palau is an enchanting destination that caters to all kinds of private yacht charter holidays, from multi-generational families to couples on their honeymoon. There are options for sailing yachts and motor yachts is the best way to make efficient use of your time, cruising while you relax on board or sleep so that you can wake up each day in a new location and fit in as many activities as you desire.
