Dangerous Beaches around the World

Praia De Boa Viagem, Brazil:Praia de Boa Viagem Praia de Boa Viagem attracts tourists throughout the year, and was once thought to be shark-free. Yet, at least 50 shark attacks have been reported to happen since 1992, and 19 of them were fatal. In addition to shark danger, the city of Recife, where the beach is situated, has serious problems with violent crime. So, you better watch your back. In recent years shark attacks have increased with 47 since 1992 along the total 12.5 mile stretch of coast. Surfing has been stopped on the urban beach area and its strongly recommended you do not climb over and swim behind the reefs due to strong, unpredictable currents and bull sharks.

Northern Territory and Queensland Australia: has never been a downer for tourists. But the spirited fauna of Northern Territory and Queensland in Australia doesn't welcome other animals, especially humans. In every year between October to April, thousands of box jellyfish inhabit in Australia’s northern territory beaches. This jellyfish is one of the most poisonous animal in the world, and its cause at least 70 deaths since 1883. Based on reserch their stings are so painful that once bitten, a person can go into cardiac arrest before reaching the shore.

1: You are very confused about Hawaii. There is no active volcano on the island of Kauai. The active volcano is on the island of Hawaii, and the area where the lava sometimes enters the sea is not called Kilauea

2: The shark attack statistics for Hawaii are also inaccurate. From 1828 to 2013 there have been 129 reports of shark attacks, 9 fatal, across the ENTIRE Hawaiian Island chain.
