If you ever get lost, just remember that if the path splits, you should turn (in other words, don't keep going straight).

For the quickest way out, go north, then west. When you reach a crossroads, go to the right and go down the lower of the two vines.

Go south, and if you want a Virgo Bracelet, go down the ladder and follow the path to get it.

Go back the way you came, then from the ladder, go south, then southeast to the next area. Refill your oxygen, then if you want some more items, go north, then southwest.

You can explore the island now, but when you are ready, go east from Mixolydia's house. Go into the cave. Follow the path until you reach the needle. You will have to fight the Barrier Trio.

Barrier Trio

Have Kumatora always use Defense Down on every turn. If available, use PSI Shield Ω. Also use PSI Counter. Duster can use the Tickle Stick. Boney should first use the Shield Snatcher, then throw bombs. Their current weakness depends on which member of the trio called out a pose last time (Barrier Man = they're weak to Fire, Barrier Gal = they're weak to Freeze, Barrier Dude = they're weak to Thunder). Or you can have Boney sniff them to find out what they are currently weak to.

After the battle, you can find Magic Butterflies in Mixolydia's house. Then go back through the island, to the beach where you first arrived on Tanetane Island, and talk to Ocho to return to Tazmily.
