Recreation & Wellness
Four Seasons Explorer Experiences
- Rock Island Experiences
The UNESCO World Heritage Rock Islands Southern Lagoon comprises hundreds of densely forested limestone formations surrounded by pristine reefs and some of the world’s clearest waters. Recreational highlights include bathing in mineral-rich white mud in the Milky Way Lagoon, castaway picnics and coconut-husking experiences on isolated beaches.
- Hiking & Waterfalls
The stunning Ngardmau waterfall is accessible on a 30- to 40-minute hike and can be swum in. It’s just one of the many land-based wonders that await hikers and adventure seekers with more time to explore.
Enjoy the purest form of underwater exploration with our qualified freediving instructors. Sink into a meditative state and challenge your body and mind as you experience the marine world up close with minimal disturbance to nature. You’ll be amazed at what you can achieve.
Breathe in the beauty of Palau with yoga and pranayama. Float into tranquility with an Omengat ritual inspired by local healing traditions or flow into peace with an Ocean Harmony Massage. With treatments performed on the upper deck or a secluded shore, our Oceania Spa combines meaningful experiences with nature’s restorative rhythms.
The avifauna of Palau spans some 185 species. Acclimatize to awe-inspiring jungle surrounds and tune into the sights and sounds of extraordinary species, including the nation’s national bird, the Palau fruit dove (Ptilinopus pelewensis).
- Water sports
In keeping with Palau’s passion for ocean conservation, our water sports follow a “leave no trace” ethos. Hone your balance on a stand-up paddleboard in a dramatic lagoon. Explore secluded shorelines by kayak or learn to freedive with our experts before putting your new skills to the test in extraordinary places like Jellyfish Lake.
- Biking Around Peleliu Island
Explore the beautiful, laid-back island of Peleliu by bicycle. Home to one village and with a population of just 700 people, it’s a haven of thick jungle vegetation interspersed with hundreds of caves, WWII relics and the rarely found yet much sought after silence of nature.
Venture out on a traditional Palauan fishing boat for some handline fishing, or cast a rod off the back of Four Seasons Explorer in the evening as the sun begins to sink.
