  • The fun begins immediately. Speed boat among picturesque islands. The breakers astern. The wind in your face. Landing at the pier. Climbing scenic trail in the rainforest. On Lake easy descent into the water. And sailed to search for jellyfish. But unfortunately not so much as to advertising material. Although the course is very scenic merits. Allowed to close, probably already accustomed to posing for a photo shoot. Lake Shore thickets of mangroves. And there among the roots of your world. I advise you to swim and take pictures there too. If bad swim, you can swim in the vest. Above all too visible, dive not necessary. Go, enjoy.

  • Lack of water during the dry season jellyfish wiped out I like, not doing the tour. But in Palau's famous just because you want to see that I have seen from Cessna. Because it does not revive a few years, and it is put in and no jellyfish permits while it don't need it.

  • Now, for the revival of the jellyfish island is off-limits. Did not land on the island and disinfect the feet prior to 2016, and you must present your permit. On foot 15 minutes will arrive in Salt Lake. Wearing life jackets and snorkel without noticing what 100000 other jellyfish to swim on their own, go up to jellyfish's Habitat. You could see the number of jellyfish still when I went to 3/2016.

  • Mindblowing and unique. Snorkeling with thousands of jellyfish --which have conveniently lost their ability to sting over millions of years of evolution within this enclosed saltwater lake--is an experience you won't soon forget. Highly recommended to check this out on any trip to Palau. The number of tourists/visitors to the lake is regulated, so it's never crowded, and there are many tour packages available that include snorkeling in other (equally magical and pristine) spots as well. Palau has some of the best snorkeling in the world! "Jellyfish Lake" is one of a kind. Not to be missed!
  • Awesome place
  • No jellyfish due to El Nino effect.
  • This one of the very unique experiences to be found in Palau. As a native of Palau I have visited this lake many times over the years. It used to be very difficult to get to because of the very treacherous climb involved. Now it has a proper dock and stairs making it much easier. Our government has done a very good job at controlling the number of visitors which helps preserve the jellyfish. Since the jellyfish are very delicate, they get damaged from normal swimming activity. If you do happen to find your way to Palau, this is an activity absolutely not to be missed.
