Mystery Island, Vanuatu

Located on the southernmost point of the Vanuatu archipelago, this little jewel of the South Pacific is completely uninhabited. Formerly used as an Allied forces landing strip during WWII, today only palm trees and sweet seclusion grow from the white sand of Mystery Island. The locals live across the waters on Tanna and visit the island during the day to spread their warmth, culture and wares. It's the perfect spot for couples, beach lovers or anyone looking to lounge in an ocean of beauty and literally get away from it all.
