8 Places You Are Not Allowed To Visit

If you are looking for new places to explore, make sure you stay away from these places.


1. Ilha da Queimada Grande, Brazil (Snake Island)

The first thing I said when I saw this was " Oh HELL NO, there is not enough money in the world for me to even get near this island." This is an island in the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of Brazil. This small island is only about 106 acres big. The Brazilian goverment shut down access to the island to the public in order to protect both people and the snake population. They say the island has a population of about 430,000 snakes, but recent estimates are much lower. This is defiantly a place you DO NOT want to visit even if you were allowed to visit because of how dangerous this place is. With more than 4,000 venomous lancehead vipers, this is not a place where you want to spend the night. I don't know about you but I would not step one foot on this island.



2. Mezhgorye, Russia


SHHHHH... Russia does not want you to know about it. This is a town in Russia that is completely close to the public. No one really knows why, but it is said that the Russian goverment used this town to test or make nuclear weapons. It was founded in 1979 as Ufa-105, and Beloretsk-16 but got labeled as a "town" in 1995 and got its current name. The 17,000+ people that live there have to follow strict laws and are not allowed to leave with our permission from the goverment. They say outsiders that wander into this town are not to be seen again.


3. Morgan Island, South Carolina, USA (Monkey Island)


This is a place you definitely don't want to get caught monkeying around in. Ok, I will stop with the bad jokes. They call is "Monkey Island" because of its colony of free-ranging rhesus monkeys. With over 3,500 hundred monkeys running around the island, Morgan Island is home to one of only two rhesus monkey colonies in the United States. The island its self is about 4,490 acres big. It is located in Beaufort County, South Carolina.


4. North Sentinel Island, India


Last But Not Least, Area 51. At first, I really didn't want to put it on the list because of that whole 2019 Storm Area 51 thing. But this list could not be completed without it. Everyone already knows about Area 51, but if you don't, here is a little info about it. Area 51 is an airforce military base where they test out highly classified aircraft. Some people think that ears. They are hunters & gatherers using bow and arrows to hunt and rudimentary methods to catch fish and seafood. The Andaman and Nicobar Islands Protection of Aboriginal Tribes Act of 1956 prohibits travel to the island and any approach closer than five miles in order to prevent the resident tribespeople from contracting diseases to which they have no immunity. Unless you are an Indian navy soldier or researchers and anthropologists, with the pre-approved clearance you can not visit this island. And I'm not sure I would want to.


5. Gruinard Island, Scotland


This is a small island about 1.2 miles long. Back in 1942, during the Second World War, a biological warfare test was carried out on Gruinard by British military scientists. They were testing the feasibility of a bioweapons attack using anthrax. Which made the island inhabitable for all mammals, until it was decontaminated in the late 20th century. even though it is clean now, I would still not suggest visiting this island.


6. Surtsey Island, Iceland

It was formed in a volcanic eruption which began 430 feet below sea level and reached the surface on 14 November 1963. The eruption lasted until 5 June 1967, when the island reached its maximum size of 1.0 sq mi long. Since then, waves have caused the island to steadily diminish in size. Three French journalists representing the magazine Paris Match landed there on 6 December 1963, staying for about 15 minutes before violent explosions encouraged them to leave. This is a new island and it is estimated that Surtsey will remain above sea level for another 100 years. It was declared off-limits to everyone but scientists who wanted to keep Surtsey free from human interference, so they could monitor the colonization process of new land by plants and animals.


7. Surtsey Caves, France


These caves were discovered in 1940. And quickly became top attractions, but in 1955 experts warned that carbon dioxide, heat, and humidity brought into the caves by tourists was ruining the rock paintings. So the caves were closed in 1963 and have remained that way since. The painting on the walls is said to be over 17,300 years old. which makes this the world’s best-preserved Stone Age art.


8. Area 51, Nevada, USA

Last But Not Least, Area 51. At first, I really didn't want to put it on the list because of that whole 2019 Storm Area 51 thing. But this list could not be completed without it. Everyone already knows about Area 51, but if you don't, here is a little info about it. Area 51 is an airforce military base where they test out highly classified aircrafts. Some people think that

this is where the military studies aliens and their technology. But our goverment has not confirmed that, and I don't think they ever would if the rumors are true. If you dare to enter this base without the proper permission the guards have a legal right to kill you on the spot.
