Bikini Atoll Beach
The notorious Bikini Atoll Beach of the U.S Marshall Islands is one of the most beautiful beaches in the world, but unfortunately it’s accordingly dangerous. On the face of it, it seems like any other beach, but its history reveals otherwise.
Back in the 1950s, during the period of the nuclear paranoia and the cold war, the U.S military needed a secluded place to run its nuclear tests – and this place was the beaches of the Marshall Islands, specifically Bikini Atoll Beach. Thus, to this day the beach has extremely high levels of radiation, making it a hazardous vacation destination.
