Mandarin Fish Lake, Koror

4.4
#5 of 6 in Nature in Koror
Discover a recluse of Palau's diverse marine life at Mandarin Fish Lake. Hidden among rocky outcrops and lush vegetation, the lake gives divers and snorkelers a glimpse of the shy mandarin fish against the white-sand backdrop of the lagoon's floor. If you don't catch sight of the epoynous fish, don't worry: the lake's rich ecosystem supports many other colorful, exotic, and rare species, and the surrounding landscape offers a plethora of photo ops. Mandarin Fish Lake is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our world travel planner, Koror Edition.
