Mystery Island

The grassy landing strip on this tiny island just off Anatom was originally cleared to serve the Allied forces during WWII and still receives two commercial flights a week. Except for those briefly busy days, and the days when cruise ship tenders arrive at the dock, Mystery Island is completely uninhabited. On cruise ship days, though, Anatom islanders arrive early to greet the visitors. In thatched stalls near the dock, locals sell souvenirs and tropical fruit and sometimes set up grills to prepare simple meals. (These days represent a major source of income for Anatom Island, so consider buying at least a small remembrance.) Visitors wander the shoreline and along groomed sandy paths to find the stretch of sugar-sand beach that best suits their vision of a day spent in a deserted island paradise.
