The Rock Islands, a UNESCO world heritage site, is comprised of 445 uninhabited limestone islands. Covered in vegetation right to the waterline, these green islands, vertically erected from the water, create a labyrinth in perfectly calm turquoise lagoons, with hidden marine lakes, rocky arches, caverns and rich coral reefs.

Palau’s reefs are home to over 700 coral species, over a 1000 species of fish (!), dugongs, sharks and more! Read about Palau’s biodiversity.

The Rock Islands were home to ancient Pacific inhabitants, and the remains of stone villages, burial sites and pictographs date back over 3000 years.
