If you decide to go to Babdelboab. this is the highlight of the trip. Part of Palau's past. The "heads" are quite worn. Well worth seeing IF you decide to do a tour of the big island

We were able to visit the monoliths and receive a narrative of the history of them. Very interesting and helpful. Beautiful photos can be taken. Cost is $5 USD to enter.

Palau is an amazing place filled with amazing people, amazing history, and amazing culture. That said, skip any of the tourist spots along the loop drive of the Compact Road. The stone monoliths were a short hike down a trail from the 'welcome kiosk'. the...More

very interested in having a look to monoliths difficult to explain. Even nowadays, researchers didn't figure out yet where and when they've been made.

Though this may be the most significant archaeological site in the whole country of Palau, it still looks quite moderate. There are some standing and some fallen monoliths all over the site (which cost US$5 to get in). They are photogenic but very moderate in...More

The drive is approximately 40 minutes. The drive around the island is great. If you have the time I highly recommend it.

There are sometimes small roadside stands on the way, but you'd be better served by bringing food from Koror.
