1. Ilha da Queimada
Given Ilha da Queimada is “only” 33 kilometers off the coast of Brazil it is the least remote of all of the island covered here. Nonetheless, if you found yourself marooned on its shores we bet you’d want to get off as quickly as possible. That’s because this island is inhabited by the golden lace head pit by viper. This snake is venomous and thousands of them inhabit the island. In fact some studies suggest that, on average, there is at least one viper per square meter. The island, nicknamed snake island, is thankfully closed to the public for the protection of the snakes and people.
