Hi, we are an association that exists of fisher folks, farmers and their families of Palaui Island. We started this community-based tourism project 8 years ago to improve the lives of our community and to create another way of income instead of being dependent on fishing for livelihood. We have been supported and trained by different organizations to be able to offer tourism related services like guiding you on snorkel trips around the island, trekking and bird watching. We welcome you to come and explore our beautiful island!
