  • 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.
