Forbidden places you can't visit
Stumbled across this article this morning and found it really interesting.

LINK

A few of my favorites



quote:

Niihau Island, Hawaii Niihau is an island situated in Hawaii that is often called ‘The Forbidden Island’. Back in 1864, it was bought by Elizabeth Sinclair and it has been privately owned ever since. It first got its name back in 1952 when, during the polio epidemic on the Hawaiian islands, it was forbidden to leave and enter the island in order to avoid the disease. Luckily, this way nobody on the island got sick. Now, with a population of 170 people, this island remains one of the most coveted travel destinations in the world, yet only a few receive permission to visit it. People say that even royalty or extremely rich people have to request entry. For example, music legend Mick Jagger was once denied clearance to land his helicopters on the island's premises.




quote:

Poveglia Island, Italy Poveglia is an island known as one of the most mysterious and creepy places in the world. It all started during the Roman Empire when the island was used to home victims of the plague. Later, during the medieval era, when the plague returned, the island once again became a home to thousands of deadly sick people. A terrible amount of people were dumped into the ground, buried in the same graves and even burned. People say that the land became so affected by the burned and rotten human corpses, its soil is now 50% composed of human ash. Then, back in 1922, they opened a mental hospital here. It is safe to say that it did not affect the patients in a positive way, since the island already had a truly creepy vibe to it. Now, you can still find washed up human bones on the island’s shore due to the horrific amount of humans killed there. With many people saying this place is haunted, no wonder this island is illegal to visit, and we’re not sure anyone would want to go there.




quote:

Svalbard Global Seed Vault, Norway Deep inside the Arctic circle, on the Norwegian island of Spitsbergen, the Global Seed vault is hidden deep inside a mountain. It is sometimes called 'The Doomsday Vault”, because even in the worst scenario of a disaster to mankind it would preserve the diversity of the world's food crops and restore the plant kingdom. It was built to last around 200 years and withstand earthquakes and explosions. It was placed on the side of a mountain so even if all the ice on earth melts, it will still be above sea level. The vault contains 100 million seeds, a complete ‘backup’ of Earth's food-crop seed at the present time. Policy is invalid here – even North Korea has frozen its seeds there. The first withdrawal from the vault was recently made by Syria in order to recreate an International Research Centre in Aleppo which was lost to war. It was used to store the genetic material of crops. Today these lost stores have become of vital importance in war-torn and drought-affected Syria.

False. If the mens is occupied and nobody is in the womens it's fair game.

It is more like an environmental preserve than it is a playground for the rich and famous.

Ilha da Queimada Grande island is located off the coast of Brazil in the Atlantic Ocean. It is the only home to now critically endangered venomous golden lancehead pit viper. The island is closed to the public in order to protect this snake population as well as protect the visitors, as by some estimates there is one snake to every square meter of the island.

You can probably get a guided tour, and I doubt the Italian government wastes a lot of resources keeping people away. I saw an article once that had pics on the island, inside all the buildings. No doubt, creepy.

Can’t believe someone hasn’t mentioned North Sentinel Island yet

quote:

A group of indigenous people, the Sentinelese, live on North Sentinel Island. Their population is estimated at between 50 and 400 individuals. They reject any contact with other people, and are among the last people to remain virtually untouched by modern civilization.
