Mystery Island, Aneityum Island

4.7
#4 of 14 in Nature in Vanuatu
Visit the uninhabited isle of Mystery Island, a charming dot in the sea with white sand and clear, calm waters. Walking around the island only takes about 20 minutes, so it is easy to explore everything in one visit. Do not miss the coral reefs just offshore, where hundreds of tropical fish swim. Although the island holds no official shops, locals often come during the day to sell handcrafted goods. If you plan to eat at this attraction, take your own packed lunch and water.

  • Spectacular views, plenty of shore tours by locals, there are plenty of little market stalls, plenty of spots to snorkel while surrounded by beautiful fish. Under the Jetti is really deep but so clear...  more »

  • The water is turquoise and warm, the sand is white and the coconuts are fresh. I enjoyed the coffee service in the cafe. Aussie cash accepted, friendly people. I heard the lobster is overpriced compared to before - I didnt try it but other guests say its not cheap anymore.
  • Mind blowing Natural Scenery and Perfect spot for Snorkeling and swimming.....Relax in the white sandy beach or swim with the fishes and explore the sea world...:)
  • Nice little island on which you won't require much time. It is a popular destination for South Pacific cruises.
