I almost didn't want to review this lovely little secret gem of an island. Tell too many people and this calm, serene retreat will become overrun and crowded. But my oh my is this place gorgeous! As mentioned above, it is a true paradise. It doesn't get any better with calm warm waters with plenty of sealife for the avid... More
While cruising the area on Celebrity Solstice we stopped at Mystery Island for the day. We were tendered ashore to what I would would consider exactly what a South Pacific island should look like, stunning beaches, beautiful sand with palm trees all around. Just idyllic in so many ways. Although we don't snorkel, we spoke to many who did and... More
We stopped here as part of a cruise. What a beautiful surprise. It is a small island, we were are able to walk around it in around 35 minutes. We spent our time exploring, swimming, snorkeling, looking through market stalls, and meeting the locals who flock to the usually uninhabited island to sell their wares when a cruise ship arrives....

Visited this island while on a Royal Caribbean cruise and it was a real nice little island. The island is uninhabited and the locals come to the island when the cruise ships arrive and set up shops with souvenirs, food, tours and native dancing shows. My wife and I walked around the entire island which has walking tracks for easy... More

Great swimming and snorkelling. Market and shore tours offered by locals. No need to book a tour with your cruise. No one lives on the island locals come over from neighbouring islands when cruise ships are in (apparently limited to 100 ships per year)
Well even dropping into Mystery Island on a cruise ship there is more than enough room to spread out and find some perfect piece of beach. The locals set up markets which is pretty much the same as all of them in Vanuatu, but they are friendly and it's fun to have a look. Just a very beautiful island, beach... More
What are the stalls like? How much money should we bring onto the island for the day? Anything worth buying? Thanks!
Hi all, I was just wondering the cost of massages and hair braiding? What are the souvenirs like?
Thanks in advance :)
How far is Mystery Island from where the ship docks? Can we use a local taxi service to get from our ship to the island rather than paying to go on a tour?
