Palau Pacific Resort in the Republic of Palau: island living and top diving!


Palau Pacific Resort

Palau Pacific Resort features a relaxed South Pacific style.
This property has an appealing old school vibe. Rather than trying to heighten the tropical atmosphere with a sleek designer interpretation of island living, it offers the casual South Pacific style made famous during the first half of the twentieth century. The on-site Splash PADI dive center offers guided diving tours and a variety of introductory classes and certification. The waters of Palau boast visibility up to 150 feet, more than 1,300 types of fish and more than 700 types of hard and soft coral. Divers can also brush up on their WWII history by exploring the wrecks of dozens of downed Japanese warships and airplanes. For an adrenalin-charged experience, advanced divers can visit the famed Blue Corner, a shark-filled underwater ridge that drops thousands of feet.
