The closer summer is, the stronger becomes the desire to pack your bags and go on a trip - towards the bright sun, gentle turquoise sea and silky white sand ... However, it should not be overlooked that not every beach can be a guarantee of a safe and lazy pastime on a sun lounger with cocktail and the information below can save not only your vacation, but also your life! So, we bring to your attention information about the most dangerous beach resorts in the world, which we do not recommend you to visit, unless you are looking for adventure and do not suffer from extreme dangerous situations.
BEWARE OF SHARKS, MEDUSA AND CROCODILES
Of course, Australia ranks first among the extremely dangerous beaches, namely: North-East coast of Queensland and the southern coast of Tiwi Islands. Here, the danger is represented not only by the well-known man-eating sharks, which swarm the tropical waters of the Australian coast, but also armed with a very powerful poison, deadly for humans jellyfish called "Sea Wasp" (Chironex fleckeri ), who love quiet coves near sandy beaches. This jellyfish, a box jellyfish in Australia itself, is mentioned with awe, since in the last 25 years alone, 60 people have died from "burns" by this jellyfish off the coast of Queensland, compared to only 13 from shark attacks. It is interesting that the killer jellyfish "Sea Wasps" even became a kind of symbol of these resorts and in 2011 Australia issued a silver coin with her image.
Do not forget about the Australian crocodile x, the incidence of attacks on people on the Australian beach Cable Beach. Due to the frequent occurrence of these reptile monsters near the resort area, this beach is periodically closed to the public.
SOUTH AFRICAN REPUBLIC
BEWARE OF SHARKS
In an honorable place in the ranking of the most dangerous - beaches called Fish Cook in Cape Town, South Africa. It is here, in the waters off the Western Cape, that the largest and most ruthless white sharks in the world live. The most frightening thing is that with the onset of heat, this species becomes especially aggressive. Despite the fact that authorities have installed underwater nets on most public beaches, attacks by killer sharks are still unavoidable, and dozens of people fall victim to these ruthless creatures every year.
BEWARE OF UNDERWATER CURRENT, SEA ROCKS AND CLOSES
The picturesque and virgin beaches of Zipolite Beach in Mexico, a haven of nudists and hippies from all over the world, do not just mean "dead shores" in translation and are among our ten most dangerous beaches in the world. The reason for this is a strong undercurrent, the strength of which is difficult even for an adult to cope with, and, once in the depths of which, it is easy to hit the sea rocks and cliffs and die. The underwater current is difficult to notice from the shore, and if you ignore the warning red flags on the shore, you can become a victim of this natural disaster.
BEWARE OF RADIATION
Who would have thought that a vacation on the incredibly beautiful pristine nature of Bikin Atoll belonging to the group of the Marshall Islands could be dangerous. But this is really so and the reason for this is the person himself. No matter how awful it sounds, but from 1946 to 1958, the United States used this beautiful island for testing hydrogen and atomic bombs, in connection with which this corner of the earth was almost completely destroyed and as a result 800 people - its inhabitants - died from cancer diseases. The radiation level here is still above normal, however, nevertheless, Bikini Atoll attracts tourists today. Its visitors are true connoisseurs of isolated recreation, even if a little with a radiation background.
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA
BEWARE OF SHARKS, LIGHTNING, WATER ACCIDENTS, WILD ANIMALS
Holidays on the coasts of Florida have earned themselves immense popularity among tourists from all over the world, since everything seems to have been created so that any person who finds himself on these lands wants to return here again and again. However, here's one beach - New Smyrna - has earned itself a notoriety as an unlucky resort and made it to our list of the most dangerous beaches in the world. A huge number of collisions of various swimming facilities, accidents on the water, flashes of lightning and shark attacks are regularly recorded here. The beach is extremely crowded and often people are simply evacuated and the beach is closed. If you do not want to spoil your vacation, serve as a target for a lightning strike, be bitten by a shark or become a victim or participant in a traffic accident on the water - you should exclude this beach from the must-visit list.
We also ask you to remove Virginia Beach from the list of must-visit beaches in the United States, despite the fact that it is considered the longest and cleanest public beach on the Atlantic Ocean and Chesapeake Bay. Why? Due to the frequent attacks on tourists by wild rabid foxes. In addition, on this "safe" beach, you can suffer from bites of wild raccoon or squirrels, which are potential carriers of various diseases.
BEWARE OF CRIMINALS AND PYRANES
One of the top spots on our list of the most dangerous beaches in the world belongs to Copacabana Beach in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. In the past, this four-kilometer beach area was considered a bohemian place and home to hundreds of Brazilian writers, artists, entertainers, politicians, businessmen and just wealthy people, but today Capacabana is a problem area with an off-scale crime rate. Robberies, prostitution, drug dealing, pirate hijackings, kidnapping and rape are commonplace both on the beach and in coastal hotels.
In addition to Copacabana, with a high crime rate, in Brazil you can become a victim of piranhas on the river beaches of São Paulo. Cases of amputation of limbs of vacationers as a result of the attack of these "river hyenas" are not isolated, since an adult is easily able to bite a human finger in half and therefore it is unpleasant to imagine what a flock of these fish is capable of. Human intervention in their habitat, namely the numerous construction of river dams, creates favorable conditions for the uncontrolled reproduction of these bloodthirsty creatures, and as a result, they arrange their "nests" in public bathing places.
BEWARE OF WASTE
The beaches of Repul's Bay in Hong Kong have been included in the list of the most dangerous beaches due to industrial lawlessness, which entailed huge environmental problems in the region. Industrial waste discharged directly into coastal waters, garbage and various kinds of pollution are the main problems of the urban beaches of Repals Bay, due to which the concentration of chemical elements in the water in this area is incredibly high, which leads to the growth of bacteria and the growth of parasitic algae, completely destroying marine life and possessing a disgusting smell. We do not advise you to visit this beach.
