We loved Mystery Island! It was our first time there and my husband and I fell in love with it. We were on Ovation and stopped there on 19th November, we organized a beach hut prior to leaving and OMG it was amazing! We had the most relaxing afternoon and were in no hurry to leave! Thank you Benie & Samara for the fab time!

The family's first time snorkelling the guides were very helpful and caring. Saw some amazing fish especially when they fed them, hundreds of beautiful tropical fish. Great experience, highly recommended!

The Glass bottom kayak & snorkeling tour was one of the best experiences of my life! With white sands, pristine waters and coconut trees it has to be one of the most beautiful places in the world. 
Paddeling over the coral reef in a kayak that you can see straight through and into the water as fish swim beneath you is an experience I will never forget. Following that with snorkeling in crystal clear waters amongst all the colourful fish.
My tour guide Wilson was great, making sure I was safe and that I had a great time.
