South of Palaui and very close to San Vicente Port is an island that has baffled many: the Crocodile Island. Officially named as Rona Island, this massive boulder in the middle of the ocean got its name from the reptile, which is what the island looks like from a distance.

There’s no camping site here. Not even trees. Only shells that washed to the shore, the howling wind, the giant rock formation, and the crocodile. Yes, the crocodile has been elusive to many. You’ve got to have sharp eyes to see it. So, if you got plenty of time for a crocodile hunt, try that in this island. @
