Peleliu Cut is a reef on the south part of Peleliu Island that features a wall that drops vertically with a large cut in it. The plateau at this dive goes down right next to the WWII monument. This spot has an exceptionally powerful and unpredictable current, so only advanced divers can explore the hidden treasures of the reef here. Peleliu Cut is popular for its hook-in point for stopping, and for the variety of marine life.
