We hired a boat through Palau Seven Wonders and had a fantastic day of snorkeling in the rock islands. We went to the Milky Way first. It was gorgeous and we had a good time covering ourselves in clay and swimming in the beautiful water.

Fun to take the boat ride through here. It seems like a different world. If you get the chance, definitely do this.

The time we were there there weren't other people but most days there are many boatfull s of people. In the first two minutes our guide found two snorkeling masks. Don't drop anything because you won't find it

Part of the Rock Island Tour, stopped by there and had some "mud" put on me. Water is clear, not really a snorkelying spot, but it's about the "white mud/clay". Cool experience!

Most tours of the Rock Islands stop at this place for everyone to lather themselves up with lime. Worth a half hour as part of the Rock Islands tours.

If you do the tour, make sure to ask for a stop here. Try to time it when there are not as many boats there (your captain or guide should know how to do that). No visibility in the water, but the lagoon is a beautiful milky blue with the clay being a supposed skin treatment. Even if you are... More

I'm glad we did it as it was park of a kayaking trip but wouldn't go out of my way to see it. Best part of tour was seeing a few jellyfish.

A twenty to thirty min stop only. The bay is pretty the white mud is fun esp for confident swimming kids. They will love it. Basically what you do is........

We went here as part of rock island tour with IMPAC tour. Our kids wore floaties we took with us and came in the water with us. They had kid life vests but they were still too big for our 2 year old. (Aged 2 and 4 years). So unique and beautiful!
