Our scuba adventure stopped at the Milky Way for some fun. The water was beautiful and clear. We were able to scoop up the sand and do a facial. It was very refreshing and fun.

This seems to be the one place Asian tourists come. They look at it and leave. It is fun to put on your body but there are other places in the world that have this "special sand".

The mud had a very weird feeling to it, so I didn't partake too much but many many people in our group of over 60 people did. My son loved it :)

Must visit place during your tour to the Rock Islands . It's has lime deposits you can scrub and then take a dip.

It's a fun and brief visit to rub Rock Island mud on yourself. Probably any tour to the Rock Islands will stop there. I enjoyed it and everyone else did, too. Great photo opportunity covered in mud.

On the Rock islands. You need to ride a boat from Koror about 30 minutes to get there.
