Stay Safe in Palau

Palau is a relatively safe place to visit. Even after midnight, it is safe to walk about downtown Koror. But, like in every other part of the globe today, common sense wins. Pedestrians should exercise caution since sidewalks are few even in downtown Koror.

Stay Healthy in Palau

Saltwater Crocodiles (Crocodylus porosus) may still be found in Palau’s mangroves and on the picturesque Rock Islands, although they might be found everywhere on the island. Despite their frightening and, in some cases, well-deserved reputation, they seldom reach to the enormous proportions seen in Australia and New Guinea. There has only been one deadly crocodile attack in Palau’s documented history, and it happened in 1965. The largest crocodile in Palau’s history was 15 feet long—large, but typical for saltwater crocodiles in most other nations. The fact that there are only around 150 adults on the island undoubtedly contributes to the rarity of assaults. Snorkeling and scuba diving are extremely popular in Palau, yet there has never been a case of a visitor being attacked in recent history. According to a recent study, crocodiles are unfairly reviled by the locals, in stark contrast to the reverence shown to them by the indigenous peoples of Australia, New Guinea, and the Solomon Islands. The causes behind this remain unknown.

Bull sharks are abundant in coastal areas and estuaries, therefore use extreme care while scuba diving or snorkeling.
