Overview of Jellyfish Lake

An attraction most can only dream of, this daring and unusual phenomena, Jellyfish Lake, departs radically from convention; for it is an enclosed body of water wherein - over the course of a millennia - resident jellyfish have completely lost their sting because they have not had to fight off predators. Instead, they spend their days in privileged leisure, pulsating gently from one side of the lake to the other while catching the sun's rays and farming their own food supply of algae.

View a film of the jellyfish by Sarosh Jacob with Radiohead's The jelly fish came to this lake in Palau through a tunnel which connected the sea and the lake a long time ago. Now the tunnel has closed, and the jelly fish are no longer poisonous in an environment where there's no predator. They live by photosynthesis because they cannot feed on anything in this lake.  - Courtesy of www.youtube.com Snorkeler shows video of swimming in Jellyfish Lake in Palau - Courtesy of OceanIslandTravel.com Thousands of non-stinging jellyfish inhabit this landlocked marine lake in Palau - Courtesy of www.youtube.com

Kay J. wrote about Sto. Nino Beach Resort:

"The beach at this resort is stunning! The rooms are small but who needs a big one when the outdoor is so enticing? Don't think about using your phone and laptop because this resort will not give you a good phone reception and internet. Sto. Nino Resort will make you forget the time and will ease your mind from stress. What I like most about this resort is Rebecca, the owner who will make sure you are well taken care of. Another best thing is their Little Boracay, an isolated beach where you can have your own privacy.
