Keep your eyes peeled for shiny shells to collect or try to spot critters like starfish and crabs at Orange Beach and Palau Pacific Resort Beach. You can find these fantastic strips of coastline 70 kilometres and 25 kilometres away, respectively.
In need of a day out in nature? Pull out your car keys and head out to Jellyfish Lake, 45 kilometres away from Melekeok. You can also get some fresh air at Rock Islands, 35 kilometres away.
Make sure you visit Capitol Building for a pleasing afternoon out.
Looking for even more awesome attractions? Head to Airai, 18 kilometres southwest of Melekeok, for Palau Aquarium and the Mother & Child Stone. Alternatively, Koror is 25 kilometres to the southwest, and it's here you'll find the Belau National Museum and the Etpison Museum.
There's a world full of amazing flavours waiting to meet your taste buds in Palau. With plenty of tantalising things to gorge on, all you need to take along is a hearty appetite — and perhaps your stretchiest trousers.
Do you love rice? What about taro? Whether you're into them or not, they are two staple ingredients commonly found in the cuisine here.
While Melekeok is home to many culinary pleasures, you shouldn't overlook broiled fish (fish with garlic ginger and banana leaves) and tinola (chicken, papaya and ginger soup). Considered regional specialties, you'll need to put them on your must-try list if you truly want to taste this destination.
You may be eating yourself into elastic-waisted trousers, but seboseb (sticky jelly) is worth every single calorie. This well-liked dessert will have your taste buds tingling with just a glance.
What better way to immerse yourself in a place than by witnessing a day of national celebration? There'll be many festivities taking place for Constitution Day on the 9th of July.
Getting to your plane on time can sometimes be an ordeal. However, it won't be too bad if you've got a plan. The closest terminal, Palau International Airport (ROR), is 18 kilometres to the southwest.
