Some is fine but the local government and people need to put controls on it to avoid the conjestion and pollution that has happened in so many other places. You were able to go at a time when the islands are still unspoiled. Hopefully, they will remain unspoiled for years to come. The towns there seem like a town I and my mother went to several times in the 1960s, Rockville, Indiana. A small town that was county seat for Parke County in West Central Indiana where everything was in walking distance and as soon as you left the town limits you were in fields of crops and open country. Best wishes, Michael E. Bailey.

Then word passes from person to person and soon a tourist agency promotes more travel to the favorite location, until so many people are visiting every years that it becomes almost as crowded and polluted as their own area. So, unless the people of Palau themselves, with the help of whoever sees the problem, closes down the tourist trade, the natural beauty will be lost and it will turn into just another tourist trap.

Trash everywhere in the water surrounding the dock…so much for “leave no trace”. I was on a 4 day solo kyak trip from island to island.
I reported it back to Sam Tour’s office on return…they didn’t believe me!

Palau people are the best…they live in Paradise and are a content lot.

Hope you have a chance to either or both (if you are a certified diver)
