How to travel to your island sanctuary in Final Fantasy XIV

Once the 6.2 patch has been released, you can easily access the quest chain to unlock the Island Sanctuary. Simply head to Old Sharlayan, and look for an NPC called the Clueless Crier (X: 11.9, Y: 11.0). They'll be quite close to the central Aetheryte plaza, and have a blue quest marker above them.

Talk to the Clueless Crier to start the quest chain, which takes you to the Island Sanctuary. Be patient, as this will contain a reasonable amount of exposition, but pretty soon, you'll be ready to live it up on your own island paradise!
