No fish or coral. Just a mud rub. If you enjoy a total body facial you might like it. My husband and I are interested in seeing coral or sea creatures.

What an amazing place to visit, take some photos, dip in the water, and even use some of the famous mud for your skin. Water is so green, can't stop looking at the photos.

The Milky Way is a fun destination in the Rocky Island archipelago where you can cover yourself wit limestone mud. Apparently this is good for complexion but I think it’s only a touristy thing, but it’s fun nevertheless.

It's really not worth a full day trip to see muddy water with a gazillion other tourist boats shoved in a lagoon.

We went here with RITC and had a great time. You put the 'mud' on whilst in the boat and lather it on for around 10 minutes, then jump in the sea and wash it off. Enjoy!

The Milky Way's mud is meant to beautify you. So, tourists cover themselves with soft white mud. The lake is small and pretty. Not my favorite site in Palau, but of interest.

Come here with a group of friends by a chartered boat, we used the mud to do mud mask then jumped into the water to wash them out. Very interesting and enjoyable. Love this area very much.

Worth seeing great not ride out, we went with Neco which was well catered on time and safe. We did go private so can not comment on group tour.

The geology of this area means that the water is milky turquoise and the bottom is clay. If you go out with Sam's Tours - and you should - the guide will dive down and get clumps of clay for you to smear all over...More

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