A relatively new fringing reef grows near Palau's main city, Koror. This hard coral reef has established itself near an area that was once mangrove, then used as a seaplane base during WWII. Known for its spectacular scuba diving the country relies heavily on its natural beauty in order to attract tourism, its major industry.
