Kayangel Island, Koror

#4 of 9 in Nature in Palau
Island · Hidden Gem · Nature / Park
Slow things down on Kayangel Island, the remote, northernmost state in Palau. With a population under 150, the island remains remarkably untouched; lush vegetation, sandy beaches, and an uncomplicated lifestyle combine to create a paradisiacal atmosphere. Only one shop operates here, along with a single school. Various tour groups run trips to the island; many allow snorkeling in its waters or include fishing trips where you can eat what you catch. Pay attention to weather warnings before going: the island is unprotected from extreme conditions.

  • Few people visit this beautiful atoll, 50 km north of the main island. It takes an hour by car and another hour by boat to reach Kayangel island where there is a tiny community of about 100 souls.  more »

  • The crown jewel of Palau. Call the state office and ask for a homestay. Stayed in Howard's summer houses and I will never forget the experience.
  • Paradise. All about here implant magically until you dream it thousand times and come back with a lovely homesickness.
