Explore the limestone landscapes, coral reefs, and turquoise lagoons of Rock Islands, a World Heritage Site. The 445 uninhabited islands draw nature enthusiasts and tourists with their sandy beaches, clear pools, and rich wildlife, both in and out of the water. Take a boat or kayak around the islands, swim in the waters, and look for ruins of former settlements inland--some dating back three millennia. The islands have the world's greatest concentration of marine lakes: bodies of seawater cut off from the ocean, supporting unique species of plants and animals that have evolved independently from their biological cousins. Various tour operators offer trips to the islands. Put Rock Islands at the forefront of your travel plans using our Koror online attractions planner.
