Mystery Island is a tropical island of Neopia, discovered on 3rd August 2000. It is noted for its native population of the Coconut People and a giant volcano.
Mystery Island has become a major tourist resort, features many games, shops, the Trading Post, and the first Training School. There is a tour of the island an owner can take their Neopets on for a small fee. In the summer, the weather is usually very hot, at around 40 degrees, with very little rain, but it is usually very wet in the late fall and winter months with lots of rain and sometimes snow.
The Island is home to the Faerie Jhuidah, who overlooks the Cooking Pot and the Trading Post. For some time, the Island held a giant golden statue of Donna, who won the Sacrificers plot, and in 2005 the Lost City of Geraptiku was rediscovered. Mystery Island is also the site of many of Jake the adventurer's exploits. Every March, Mystery Island celebrates Gadgadsbogen, a festival where new varieties of fruit appear.
The two islets nearby are called Umbuku Island, where the Island Mystic Lives, and Tikutaku Island, where three stone heads stand in monument to a hero from the Island's past.

The Lost City of Geraptiku
The Lost City of Geraptiku
The Lost City of Geraptiku is an abandoned city deep within the jungle of Mystery Island towards the northern most shores. It was discovered by curious archaeologists on August 6, 2005, and has been abandoned for so long the jungle has been reclaiming the land originally taken by the city. Mystery Island natives are fearful of Geraptiku, and are so superstitious about even mentioning its name or looking in its direction. It's believed Geraptiku fell into decline due to it's peoples' excessive pride and claims of greatness, and were struck down in one night by the spirits they angered.
All that remains of the once great city is a collection of rotted huts, a Geraptiku Petpet shop owned my a mystery shopkeeper, and a Desert Temple. Geraptiku is also the location of the game Goparokko, after a Yurble discovered that putting special coloured blocks together made them disappear.
