Vanishing Reef Palau
A Vanishing Reef, Palau
Sometimes it's all a matter of timing. In Palau when the tides are low, very low, in certain areas reefs and beaches can appear, miles from the nearest land. And when the tide rises once again, reef and beach vanish under the surface. This is along German Channel where we pulled up and had lunch between dives. Shortly after taking this an eel swam by in 6 inches of water. Simply an amazing site. We simply got lucky that the tides were so low that day as they were not expected to be that low again in some time.
