Mystery Island, Aneityum Island

#5 of 19 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.
