9. Poveglia Island
What defines “creepy”? What defines “survivable”? As in many things, it depends on who’s talking about it, and what the context of such things are. However, there are some cases of islands that transcend context, and are generally considered creepy and unsurvivable. One such island is Poveglia Island.
8. Oak Island
Sometimes creepiness can be measured not by the island itself, but in the people that go there. For example, if an island appears to have treasure, people will go out of there way to find it, including risking their own lives. Such is the case with Oak Island, an island 500 feet from Canada.
7. Izu Islands
This one is a bit tricky, because there are people living on the Izu islands, but there’s one heck of a catch. You see, these islands, which are set southeast of Japan, are notorious for their volcanic activity. To the point where they happen so frequently, people are ordered to carry gas masks all the time.
6. Senguin Island
Ghost stories help sell the idea of an island being creepy, or haunted. And it can make it so you never want to go to a particular island. The best ones though are ones that both can’t be explained, and didn’t start out as creepy.
5. Island Of The Dolls
There are some things that register to everyone as “creepy”, and dolls can most certainly be that to many, especially when they’re made a certain way. But also, when they’re hung from trees on an island.
No, we don’t mean if you’re locked up you wouldn’t survive there. Though that is an option. Alcatraz was built to be one of the safest and most secure prison islands ever constructed. And despite numerous breakout attempts, there has never been an official confirmed escape…there are some rumor that it did happen….
3. Ramree Island
What makes an island dangerous? What makes it scary? Is it its history? The inhabitants that live there? Or the fact that no matter what way you make it to that island, you’re probably screwed. Such is the story with Ramree Island, a place we guarantee you will not survive under any circumstances.
2. North Pacific Gyre
Let me ask you a question. When you throw your trash away, do you recycle? You should, but do you? Honestly? If not, you’re part of the problem going on in the North Pacific Gyre.
1. Islands Overrun By Animals Of A Single Species
To wrap it up, there are also several islands out there in the world that are infested by animals of a single species. For example, in Japan, there is Okonoshima island, which is overrun by rabbits.
