Independent review for Mystic Sands in Vava'u Island the Kingdom of Tonga

accommodation hotel location picture

Mystic Sands is a small laid back oceanfront setting with just four units offering spacious interiors. There's a pontoon with access to deep water for both swimming and snorkelling and a man-made beach area with sun loungers for lazing. This is a good choice for those who like to do their own thing, are not fussed about a beach, but enjoy swimming, snorkelling, kayaking, tranquil ocean and island views, and an intimate non-serviced environment.
