Islands that do not exist or appear on any map (II)

Islands that do not exist or appear on any map (II)

We continue with our review of ten fantastic, mysterious, terrifying and void. Yesterday I mentioned five of them and today we complete the list of five islands.

Thanks for your comments, the truth is there are many that are not on the list but this is a personal choice and there is only room for ten. You can follow commenting so that the post be enriched by your contributions. Here are the remaining five islands:

Atlantis – Greek Mythology

The mythical Atlantis was described by Plato in Timaeus and Critias dialogues, and since then has fascinated generations and fame has not stopped growing. It has never been found, although occasionally some news appears claiming the discovery of their location. I prefer to remain a mystery unattainable. Atlantis was located beyond the Pillars of Hercules (Gibraltar) and its size was larger than Asia Minor and North Africa combined. His disappearance was the work of the Olympian gods who decided to punish the pride of the Atlanteans and “a terrible day and night”, after an earthquake and subsequent flooding, the island was wiped off the face of the earth.

Nublar – Jurassic Park

John Hammond bought this island located about 200 kilometers off the coast of Costa Rica to create the most amazing theme park of all time: Jurassic Park. We already know that the venture of Hammond finished as the rosary of dawn but the island remained. Nublar is a tropical island, misty, lush and wet, in fact there are several rivers and a lake. It’s an awesome place but too dangerous for my taste.

Shutter Island – Shutter Island

Martin Scorsese moved to the big screen the novel by Dennis Lehane, Shutther Island, with Leonardo DiCaprio starring. The island is off the coast of Boston and is home to a psychiatric hospital of a woman who has disappeared. The place is cold, cold, distressing, a haunting gothic atmosphere and adheres to every stone, every hallway. The rain seems to never stop and lighthouse, located in the distance, it seems the only light between so dark. Shutter Island is not an island of dreams, nightmares and pain holds.

Monkey Island – Monkey Island

Never a game has given so much island. Who has not spent hours at the computer screen in the footsteps of intrepid Guybrush Threepwood and awkward? Monkey Island is situated in the Caribbean Sea, in her fabulous secrets are hidden. For years it has been the perfect haven for pirates, cannibals and the home of the odd shipwreck lost. Volcanoes, mountain ranges, rivers and beaches shape the most ludicrous, dangerous and fun in the Caribbean island.

Lian Yu – Arrow

Oliver Queen survives a shipwreck to make their bones on this island, which at first seemed to be the place of salvation ends up becoming a hell that will not be easy to survive. Lian Yu means purgatory. The island is located somewhere in the northern South China Sea. For five long years, Queen, must overcome terrible and painful tests. It is the only inhabitant of the place, people should avoid if you want to stay alive and people you can learn a lot.
