A hidden island, surrounded by fog

Hidden islands are islands that are shrouded under fog which need to be unlocked in order to gain access to them. By default, hidden islands are only available in Isla Paradiso, although there's a method to create custom hidden islands.

There are a total of 8 hidden islands around Isla Paradiso, and each of them can be unlocked in different ways. Once a hidden island is revealed, the fog will recede and the island will be owned by the Sims who discover it. The island will become the Sim's secondary home, or it can be turned into a resort. Below is the method how to unlock them.
