“Jellyfish Lake” has changed the previously unknown, uninhabited island of Eil Malk. It is probably one of the smallest and newest islands in the world, part of the Palau archipelago in the Central Pacific Ocean.

In the tropical lake you can enjoy the incredible experience of snorkeling with millions of jellyfish, which migrate every day following the horizontal position of the sun on the surface of the water.

This species of jellyfish has been isolated from its descendants who swim in the oceans for 15 thousand years, and, over time, its sting, its defense against predators, has weakened and has become innocuous to man.

It might seem dangerous, but swimming with these jellyfish is safe and so spectacular that snorkeling in Jellyfish Lake has now become a popular tourist attraction; be careful, however, scuba diving is not allowed because of the high quantity of hydrogen sulphide in depth.
