Milky Way, Koror

4.3
#2 of 12 in Parks in Palau
Coat yourself in the therapeutic clay of Milky Way, a stretch of water that cuts between Palau's rocky islands. Locals say that dipping into the water and covering yourself in the milky, paste-like mud from the floor of the bay gives a more youthful appearance. A range of tour operators drop anchor here and allow visitors to swim in the warm waters, while guides dive to the bottom and bring up buckets of the mud. Rub it over your body and face to test out the rejuvenating effects enjoyed by locals and tourists alike. A visit to Milky Way represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Koror trip itinerary builder to plot your vacation.
