Our fourth stop would be Mystery island which was the first stop Hayley hadn't been to before. It was amazing because it was completely uninhibited and a true island experience. The locals would sail over from the main island with goods to sell the cruise passengers but nobody actually lived there. From some fact boards on the island I learned that this was because years ago the locals thought it was haunted by sea gods and so it has been taboo to love there ever since. James cook discovered it as he did with many of the other islands and actually set up business and trade there before a tidal wave wiped it all out.
The Island was the most incredible and idyllic place id seen and it had crystal clear waters all around which we all took advantage of. The Island was so small that you could walk around it via the jungle track in such a short time. There were little toilet huts scattered along the Island and plenty of places to recycle your rubbish from the day which was great. I was happy to read that this was a protected marine reserve and there did everything to keep it like that.! There was a little church choir singing, a little kindergarten group playing and there were places to donate to the Red Cross and other local organisations which I was happy to do. Mystery Island was one of our favourite islands and we loved this true paradise before us, it was like nothing we'd ever seen. This place is definitely a highlight!
