Palau had the best snorkeling we have ever seem. There was so many place to snorkel and getting to swim with the jelly fish was a once in a lifetime experience. Palau does not have that many beaches so you really need to go out on excursion everyday. We did stay on the north end of the island that has a beach but it is about an hour away from the main town. So if you stay here you really just have to relax since there is not much else to do there.
