    Jelly Fish Lake

    by alvinwong Written Feb 25, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    You MUST visit the Jelly fish lakes in Palau. You might have seen this natural wonder on nature documentaries on NGC or Discovery Channel. It was the main reason why I chose to visit Palau.

    It was amazing to swim amongst the ga-zillions jelly fish. Don't worry, they are stingless since all their stinging nematocysts have been lost to their isolation in the limestone marine lake. The jelly fish made their living by their symbiotic algae (zooxanthellae). They have to sun themselves to allow the algae to photosynthesize.

    Tip 1: bring suitable footwear since you have to climb up and down a small hill to access the lake. the island is limestone, so the surface can be sharp and slippery.

    Tip 2: don't lift the jellyfish out of water. their bodies will be damaged that way. move gently and do not kick violently because you might accidentally damage these delicate creatures

    Rent a boat! You see Palau...

    Rent a boat! You see Palau called as the 'hanging garden'. There are a lot of little isles, green from the top to the bottom, look like a swimming forest between the sea. I´ve never seen this before. It looks great!
    The best way to see the most beautiful places is to take a little boat include an leader living in Palau. He knows all the wonderful places to dive and snorkel between the little isles.

    Scuba diving. I recommend DivePalau with Keith. He does a good dive briefing and shows you both the big and small underwater. He is perhaps the best under water guide in the business. You get to see a great variety of marine life on his dives and I recommend two or three days of diving with him.

    One of the not to be missed activity is to snorkel around the JellyFish lake where we can swim/snorkel with millions of stingless jellyfish.

    The Palau Pacific Resort has a beautiful beach. The swimming was great and the snorkling 50' out from shore was excellent, too!

    Diving and Dolphin

    You NEED to dive here.
    There is an institute called Dolphine Pacific where they investigate dolphines. You can touch and swim with dolphine there.
    Also you can go to a jelly fish lake.
