The people of Aneityum (the nearby island) won't live on Inyeug Island (known as Mystery Island by tourists) because they believe it's haunted by spirits. All infrastructure here is for tourists - toilet block, market/bar/massage huts and a mini airport with a grass runway.
Inyeug means Small Island in a local language - and it's correct. 1.5km square, Mystery Island is easy and fun to walk around. I go for a wander, trying to find my little slice of solitude. But can't. The one path around the island is tranquil, but there is only so much island over 2000 people can scatter over. Most people head to the southern side where there are sun chairs, bar and food. I head the opposite way.
The girls get their hair braided, Ashton shops his way through the market, we watch the local men doing dance performances (while their kids watch on), and then I relax on the beach.
