Plunge beneath the waters at Big Drop-off, a popular dive spot in Palau. Novices will enjoy the rich diversity of marine life on display here, centered around a coral reef that drops down 274 m (900 ft) to the ocean floor. Gray reef, white tip, and leopard sharks are all visible, patrolling the still waters. Look out for stonefish and leaf fish, disguising themselves against the colorful coral.
