These 6 Creepy, Abandoned Islands Are Definitely NOT Suitable For Your Vacation

Don’t let Hawaii or Tahiti fool you: islands are scary. For every tropical paradise, there’s some Shutter Island or Island of Dr. Moreau -- from which there is no escape but a long (shark infested?) swim.

But fiction can’t compete with the world’s real island nightmares. We partnered with the History Channel’s “The Curse of Oak Island,” where six treasure hunters have lost their lives, to bring you tales of island mystery, madness and murder. Catch “The Curse of Oak Island” season premiere on Nov. 4 at 9/8c.

CORRECTION: An earlier version of this piece incorrectly referred to "The Island of Dr. Moreau" as "The Island of Dr. Thoreau."
