Jellyfish Lake Koror Reviews
Jellyfish Lake Nov 19, 2005
You can’t miss Jellyfish Lake when you go to Palau. It is a MUST to visit this place. The lake is a salt water lake, trapping the jellyfish that live there and also developed their symbiosis with photosynthetic algae. As a result, they lost their ability to sting.
Uh oh, so it means they are sting less jellyfish?? Yes, they are!! You don’t have to worry to get rashes from touching the jellyfish!
During the day the jellyfish follow the cycle of the sun. When the sun brightest over the lake, the jellyfish head toward the surface to harness the sun's energy. It’s spectacular to swim, snorkeling and diving with millions of jellyfish around you!
The lake is a fragile ecosystem. Visitors are allowed to swim with the jellyfish but it is recommended that you do not use fins and swim slowly and carefully as to not disturb the jellyfish.
