If you want to enjoy a peaceful and adrenaline-free vacation, you should avoid these 25 Most Dangerous Beaches You Might Not Want To Visit.
Dumas Beach, India
An urban beach along the Arabian Sea in the Indian state of Gujarat, the Dumas Beach has always been shrouded in mystery. Originally a cremation ground, the beach is considered one of the most haunted and deadliest beaches in India. There have been several reported disappearances here, and it doesn’t seem to be the sharks that are doing the taking.
Second Beach, South Africa
With as many as eight people killed by sharks in just five years, Second Beach in Port St. John’s, South Africa, is one of the world’s deadliest beaches for shark attacks. Most of the attacks are blamed on bull sharks, which are found in warm, shallow waters along coasts and in rivers.
Kilauea Beach, Hawaii
Kilauea Beach is one of many spectacular beaches found in Hawaii; however, it is also one of the most dangerous beaches in the world as it is located right next to an active volcano. The volcano has been constantly erupting since January 3rd 1983, so there’s a little chance of catching it on an “off” day.
Staithes Beach, UK
Located in North Yorkshire, UK, Staithes Beach is also one of the world’s most dangerous beaches. The coastal spot attracts surfers for its big waves, but it’s been declared one of the worst beaches in Europe as the water is so polluted here that it fails to meet the basic human standards for water sports.
Fraser Island Beach, Australia
Despite numerous wonderfully beautiful beaches with snow-white sand and warm, crystal clear waters, the Australian island Fraser is extremely dangerous for recreation. The deserted beaches are home to deadly spiders and wild dingo dogs, which often attack people. The sea is also infested with sharks and jellyfish.
