Its real name is Isla Quemada Grande, and of paradise destination, it has rather little. Although it could be the perfect setting to shoot some adventure film in true Hollywood style.

And is that the island has a spectacular figure of 5 cobras per square meter. In other words, a visit only suitable for the bravest. Despite everything, the Brazilian island hides a nature as beautiful as wild and dangerous. But yes, a scenic beauty was seen from afar.

An island in Venice with a dark past

Another island that we could also consider as one of the most dangerous in the world is Poveglia Island. The most daring tourists will have to go to a Venice lagoon, in Italy, to discover a tourist destination with a lot of history. Although a story that makes your hair stand on end.

And it is that Poveglia Island is also known as the island of no return. During Roman times, the island was used to isolate plague victims.

Later, during the Renaissance, the island became the place where to pile the corpses that died due to the bubonic plague, which devastated Europe in the 14th century. Here, the bodies were cremated. Even men, women and children still alive were even thrown on the cremation pyres. So, with such a past, few brave people enter this corner of Italy.

Izu volcanic islands

The Izu archipelago, belonging to the Japanese national park Fuji-Hakine-Izu, consists of a group of 13 islands of volcanic origin located in southern Japan, among which, the largest is known by the name of Izu Oshima.

At first glance, this group of islands may seem like a heavenly place to enjoy a peaceful vacation, lie on its sand and enjoy its crystal clear waters. The reality is very different and is that the intense volcanic activity of these islands makes their water and land have the largest concentration of sulfur in the world.

This is the reason why, in 1953, all its inhabitants had to be evacuated, leaving it uninhabited for almost 50 years. It was not until the year 2000 when, little by little, life returned to this island. Of course, everyone who wants to set foot on this island is required to wear a gas mask that protects them from dying poisoned by sulfur.
