What to see in Palau

If you are seriously thinking about spending your summer holidays at Palau, then it is good to know what are the most interesting things to see, besides the beautiful sea. Among the points of major tourist interest, we certainly find the Fortezza di Monte Altura, a military fortress located outside the city that offers an excellent vantage point over the city and the sea. Another important tourist attraction is the Roccia dell’Orso, a 122-meter high granite hill that, thanks to erosion by the wind and other atmospheric agents, has acquired over the centuries the shape of a real bear.

Because of this peculiarity, the Rock of the Bear was, in ancient times, used as a natural reference point for navigators.  The list of things to see in Palau, however, certainly can not miss the reference to the paradisiacal beaches whose only thought emanates relaxation. The beaches, which alternate with stretches of coast in granite rock, are of fine white sand and surrounded by a turquoise sea, on one side, and expanses of Mediterranean scrub, on the other. The most famous beaches of Palau are Sciumara, Porto Faro and Palau Vecchio, but the most famous is the Isuledda, a real small peninsula that gives the feeling of being on a Caribbean beach.

The more spartans will be lucky to be able to rent a beautiful house overlooking the sea, certainly with less comfort than luxurious hotels but highly recommended for those who love to live the sea calmly, come back late and – maybe – dine out every night!
