Traveling to far away beautiful places to shake off all bumps and grinds of everyday life is a lifetime dream of many people. But even the most wonderful lands, where the nature is so charming that you could paint it straight away can hide some life-taking threats.
Such is one of the most exotic objects on the planet Earth, a small Brazilian island with enigmatic name Ilha da Queimada Grande. In the offing its siren beauty looks awfully attractive; and indeed, the island’ picture-postcard landscapes and herbaceous community deserve to be captured by the world’s best photographers.
But if you knew one more name of this island, you would figure out at once why lots of people avoid visiting this tantalizing place. As soon as you find out a bit more about Ilha da Queimada Grande, you will not be so interested in its beauty any longer.
The island is situated only 93 miles from the Brazilian Sro Paulo midtown, its area of 106 acres would remind you a paradise with picturesque nature, warm climate, sandy beaches, beautiful birds, exotic and clear blues of water among rocks, coves and bays; but one slight problem will cancel out all your gains if you decide to step in there.
The thing is that Ilha da Queimada Grande is quite different from what it seems. First of all, you are not allowed to visit this place without obtaining the Brazilian government permit, but this is not the main reason of the island’s peculiar distinction. What sets it apart from other similar places is that this island is one of the most murderous areas in the whole world.
