MAPPED: The most dangerous islands in the WORLD – with crocodiles and nuclear wastelands

Whilst a deserted island may seem like a safe space to be in the current climate, they may not be the best place to hide from the threats in the world.

Instead of beautiful beaches and calm forests, some islands should never be ventured to by humans.

The most dangerous islands in the world have been revealed, where people who have tried to step a foot on have been killed in some of the most terrifying of ways.

Ilha da Queimada, Brazil

Also known as snake island, Ilha da Queimada is just off the coast of Sao Paulo.

The threat on the island is in the title, with dangerous and venomous snakes overrunning the island and a lack of antidotes available for those who are bitten.

There are also many Golden LanceHead Vipers on the island, with five reportedly every square foot.

Bikini Atoll, Marshall Island

A large domed structure can be seen on this island, part of the Enewetak Atoll.

This was put into place by the US government after nuclear tests took place underneath it.

The radiation caused by this not only means it is uninhabitable but also caused the evacuation of locals who were in the area.

Ramree Island, Burma

A terrifying story that emerged from Ramree Island took place during World War II when British troops forced Japanese soldiers into the mangrove rainforest.

With 1,000 soldiers pushed back, only 500 escaped which was rumoured to be due to the huge saltwater crocodiles hiding in the area, who then ate and killed half of the men.

Whilst modern historians refute the story, the huge amount of deaths by crocodile is still in the Guinness World record book.

North Sentinel Island, India

The island has one of the last indigenous tribes that have no contact with the outside world, still using primitive bows and spears.

This also means that those who dare go near are often attacked or kills, with two fishermen who strayed too close to the island falling victim.

No-one is able to land in the Bay of Bengal island due to this with helicopters even fired at when over land.

Reunion Island, Indian Ocean

Just 150km from Mauritius, this dangerous island has banned all people from swimming in the ocean.

The water hides an unusually high amount of sharks preying in it that have been the cause of a high number of shark attacks.

Following the deaths of many people, the ban came into effect for swimmers and surfers since 2013.

Miyake-Jima, Japan

The volcanic island near Japan is famously known for its creepy gas masks, as the residents have to carry them at all times.

Due to the sometimes deadly amount of sulphur in the air, a warning siren goes off when the levels creep to a dangerous level.

Despite this, many residents still live on the island.

Saba, Netherlands

The island in the Netherlands has suffered from the most hurricanes compared to any other island in the world in the past decade.

As many avoid the island due to the prevalence of natural disasters, it is rumoured that many pirates now use it for their base too.

Gruinard Island, Scotland

A small island off Scotland, it holds a huge amount of toxic ground.

It was top secret due to the secret experiments using Anthrax, which killed entire flocks of sheep.

The ground still contains some of the chemicals in the soil, it is believed.
