Palau is an amazing place filled with amazing people, amazing history, and amazing culture. That said, skip any of the tourist spots along the loop drive of the Compact Road. The stone monoliths were a short hike down a trail from the 'welcome kiosk'. the...More

We visited the monoliths on a tour. It is a bit of a drive and not as scenic as I hoped. You have to walk down a number of steps to get there so not for elderly or small children. You pay a fee but...More

The stone monoliths were supposedly the foundation for the islands largest bai (longhouse) which no longer exists. They are interesting but not overly so. Combined with the waterfall, they are worth a visit but I wouldn't go just to see them. There is an admission...More

We stopped here as part of a land tour we did with Sam's Tours. These are 2,000 some year old artifacts from the early Polynesian settlers of Palau. There is a nice painting on the gable end of the entrance building. They charge $10/person to...More
