Kayak-eye view: Rock Islands of Palau
What to do when you find yourself on an island chain in the North Pacific and just really need to get away for a while?
Grab a kayak, hitch a ride, and launch out for the Rock Islands of Palau:
Every morning, swarms of dive boats leave the city of Koror for the waters of the Rock Islands.
Hitch a ride, and on the way to dive spots most will be happy to drop you on a beautiful white beach somewhere in the islands.
Beach your kayak...
...set up camp...
...and get out into the water!
At the end of the day, paddle out into the still water and watch the sky change colors over the islands.
Or better yet, paddle straight into the sunset across still reflective seas.
The next morning get up with the sun...
Take a quick paddle before breakfast.
Return to your private lagoon as the tide comes in.
And repeat the experience again and again until the time comes to return to Koror.
If you're lucky, you might even be able to bum a ride home with one of the private sailboats plying the local waters!
