Our tour guide got a lot of volcanic mud which we applied onto our body and jumped into the water afterward. I enjoyed swimming in that area and the color of the water was mesmerizing!

Great fun! The white mud looks pure. Gives a good feeling for skin. The water temperature was suitable for swimming, not too warm, not too cold.

Palau’s very fine white clay bath makes you feel very refreshed and energized after. Even in rainy day this area is calm and quiet. Must experience when you in Palau.
