If you are traveling in the north this site is worth stopping off for in many ways as it does contain some of the oldest archaeological remnants in the country. The last remains of the foundations for an ancient tribal house are massive and give...More

Though this may be the most significant archaeological site in the whole country of Palau, it still looks quite moderate. There are some standing and some fallen monoliths all over the site (which cost US$5 to get in). They are photogenic but very moderate in...More

Our visit was well worth the ride to this sight on the north end of the island. Not only are the stones impressive (including ones with faces of ancient gods) but so is the view of the ocean. We we went with Sam's Tours and...More

By any means, this place can not be missed. Try to be there at the late afternoon, when the sunlight gives the monoliths the warm colours and there are almost no tourists.

Isolated location, need a rental car to get there, or join a tour. Nice spot for a field trip. Have a decent view of the shore.

We spent a day driving around Babeldaob and I'm glad we were able to experience a visit to the stone monoliths and carved faces. We were the only people there, so it was quiet and peaceful. Great view of the ocean. Good informational signs. $5...More

There are sometimes small roadside stands on the way, but you'd be better served by bringing food from Koror.
