The Jellyfish lake is a unique place on our planet where you can swim among the 2 million jellyfish, with no fear of them bites! Medusae lake attracts thousands of tourists who want to see this wonder of the world.
The Jellyfish lake is located in the archipelago of the Rocky island, in the Republic of Palau. Palau is an archipelago in the Pacific ocean, located 800 km East of the Philippines and North of Indonesia. Palau consists of more than 300 Islands, but only 9 of them inhabited. The Jellyfish lake is located on the island ESA-ICFA, more than 20 kilometers to the Southeast from the largest city Korora.
The size of the lake is approximately 460 metres in length and 160 meters in width, the area of the mirror 0,057 km2. Its shape resembles a bowl, the average depth is 30 metres and the deepest point is about 50 meters. The lake is a slightly salty body of water which is separated from the ocean by a strip of land about 200 meters. Despite its isolation, it is connected with the ocean through tunnels and cracks in the limestone ancient reef.
This is a colorful place with an unusual history. The Jellyfish lake appeared as a result of the movement of the earth’s crust about 12,000 years ago. After the collision of two tectonic plates on the border with ocean, a depression formed separated from the ocean. So there was a half-mile marine lake. Through pores in limestone in the formed cavity of the leaked is not only the salt water, but jellyfish, as well as some small marine life.
Large marine animals, of course, could not get there, so jellyfish were closed and favorable for the life and reproduction space without natural enemies. So, during the existence of the lake in the absence of many natural enemies jellyfish multiplied about 2 million individuals. Continue reading
