Rock Island
The Rock Islands of Palau, also called Chelbacheb. These are the small collections of limestone or coral uprises, located in Palau's Southern Lagoon, between Koror and Peleliu. There are 250-300 islands with area about 47 sq. km. Rock Islands is a World Heritage Site since 2012.

The islands are for the most part uninhabited and are famous for their beaches, blue lagoons and the peculiar umbrella-like shapes of many of the islands themselves. The Rock Islands and the surrounding reefs make up Palau's popular tourist sites such as Blue Corner, Blue hole, German Channel, Ngermeaus Island and the famed Jellyfish Lake, one of the many Marine lakes in the Rock Islands that provides home and safety for several kinds of stingless jellyfish found only in Palau.
