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. PutMilky Way into our Koror journey planner and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.
