Crocodile Island

Santa Ana

Akin to the shape of a crocodile, this islet is not just any other beach destination in the middle of the sea. It is a natural barrier from swelling waves coming from the Pacific Ocean before entering the narrow strait between Palaui Island and mainland Santa Ana. Its jagged and barnacle-laden rock appeals for nature photography or as a backdrop for those click-worthy self or group portraits.

On the other hand, its small beach with off-white coral sand is inviting enough for a quick dip. Dropping by this islet can either start your day’s ocean adventure, or be the perfect place to end your island and beach hopping while waiting for that awe-inspiring sunset to cap your day.
