We rented a car from Alamo for a day and toured around the Island of Palau including the Northern part, the Babeldaob Island. The stone monoliths are located in the northern most part of the Babeldaob Island in the State of Ngarchelong at Badrulchau. The area is well sign posted and is a short diversion by car from the main... More

We visited the monoliths on a tour. It is a bit of a drive and not as scenic as I hoped. You have to walk down a number of steps to get there so not for elderly or small children. You pay a fee but there is not much of a description about the monoliths on site. If you have... More

The stone monoliths were supposedly the foundation for the islands largest bai (longhouse) which no longer exists. They are interesting but not overly so. Combined with the waterfall, they are worth a visit but I wouldn't go just to see them. There is an admission fee.

We stopped here as part of a land tour we did with Sam's Tours. These are 2,000 some year old artifacts from the early Polynesian settlers of Palau. There is a nice painting on the gable end of the entrance building. They charge $10/person to go downhill about 3-4 min to the grassy area where you will find about 20-some... More

By any means, this place can not be missed. Try to be there at the late afternoon, when the sunlight gives the monoliths the warm colours and there are almost no tourists.

Isolated location, need a rental car to get there, or join a tour. Nice spot for a field trip. Have a decent view of the shore.

We spent a day driving around Babeldaob and I'm glad we were able to experience a visit to the stone monoliths and carved faces. We were the only people there, so it was quiet and peaceful. Great view of the ocean. Good informational signs. $5 entry fee which can be paid in advance at the tourist office or once you... More

As part of a drive around Palau's big island this is a highlight. This & the Capitol are the two main landmarks to see. Very interesting stones, but needs a bit of imagineeering to see how they worked. Well maintained gardens, just about worth $5 each to see.

After a bit of bumbling about and a wrong turn or two - I was able to locate the entrance to this sight. The ranger greeted me, and informed me the entrance fee was $5. I had a ten, and as I was the first customer of the day, she had no change to give me. She therefore let me... More
