(Dunlap, 2014)
There are many beautiful beaches to enjoy in Palau.

“Palau has been named one of the Underwater Wonders of the World”
(Visit-palau.com, 2014)
There are many different water adventure activities available in Palau, you can scuba dive with sharks, snorkeling, dolphin encounters and surfing to name a few. Perhaps most famous is swimming with the stingless jellyfish at Jellyfish Lake.
Visit-palau.com is run by the Palau Visitors Authority, and directly appointed by the government of Palau it is within its interest to promote tourism to the country.
Palau has a number of spas and wellness retreats to choose from but one of the most interesting is the Milky Way Lagoon, a natural lagoon with healing limestone mud.
“The creamy water gives off a cloudy mystique, its bottom covered not by sand, but by white limestone mud, which gives the water a milky sheen.”
(McDonough, 2014)
According to World Arts today it is a "online arts and culture magazine that provides independent and original journalism" this appears to be the case and it is listed as a non profit organisation.
Palau is a collection of islands in Micronesia famous for its beautiful limestone islands and the abundance of water activities available.
“The Republic of Palau is inimitable. Most tourists who come here like to spend their time underwater, for Palau is among the world's most spectacular diving and snorkelling destinations”
(Lonely Planet, 2011)
