Palau: The Beaches!

I have posted the boat rides, the super-cool pictures of the jellyfish lake, and I’ll be posting a ton of diving pictures later.  But Palau also has amazing beaches!  And when you dive 5 days in a row from a boat, you stop to eat your bento box lunch at some pretty spectacular places…  (Again, apologies for the drops of water on the lens of some of the pictures.)

If I remember it correctly, the beach below is Ulong Beach, where one of the Survivors was filmed.

As you can see in the picture below, I was too lazy to remove my wetsuit most of the time…  It’s no wonder I came home with a burnt back and face, but non-tanned legs.  But putting on a wetsuit is a pain!

The folks with spent most of our days with on our dives!

And lastly our hotel beach.  It’s a little small man-made beach that I never actually got to use (we were so pooped when we got back at the end of the day that we would go straight to the shower), but the last day I walked on the sand, and it was very soft fluffy sand, not bad!  If United hadn’t screwed up our travel, we would have enjoyed the beach on the first day of our trip.  (We stayed at the Palau Royal Resort, I’ll post a full review later.  I still owe so many travel reviews…)

    Amazing place. The sand is so light and the water is clear as crystal. Wow!

    Hi Carla, how easy is to access to these beaches? Are they close to any hotel? Where are they located? South?
