Palau is a small archipelago located in the western Pacific Ocean. It is made up of more than 500 islands, and is situated near the equator between the Philippines and Guam. The main islands of Palau are Babeldaob, Koror, Angaur, and Peleliu. These four islands make up ninety percent of Palau’s total land area. The remaining ten percent is comprised of more than 200 smaller islands, many of which are uninhabited. Palau’s terrain consists mostly of rugged limestone and volcanic rock with some low hills and a few sandy beaches. The majority of the terrain is covered in tropical rainforest, which provides a habitat to much of Palau’s unique flora and fauna. There are numerous coral reefs surrounding the islands, providing an abundance of marine life that makes Palau a popular destination for snorkeling and scuba diving enthusiasts. There are also several freshwater lakes on Babeldaob that provide habitats for native birds and fish species. The climate in Palau is tropical with temperatures ranging from 75 to 85 degrees Fahrenheit year-round with little seasonal fluctuation. This mild climate combined with its beautiful scenery makes Palau an attractive tourist destination for travelers from all over the world.
