palau maps, detailed map of palau, map of palau

Palau - often referred to as Belau - consists of the far-western portion of the Caroline Islands, including the larger islands of Angaur, Babulthuap, Eil Malk, Koror, Peleiu and Urukthapel.

For over 30 years it was a part of the United Nations Trust Territory of the Pacific under United States administration. It finally gained its total independence in 1994.

Palau is a beautiful tropical paridise, and one of the true unspoiled destinations on the planet. Most of the 100-plus islands are small low-lying coral islands, ringed by barrier reefs. The exception is mountainous Babulthuap, volcanic in origin.

The economy revolves around agriculture and fishing, but scuba diving in the pristine reefs is a growing-in-popularity tourism activity.
