A few months later, things got worse for the family when his wife was drowned. The next resident had also died of a heart attack. The next owner committed suicide and so onwards. There have been a number of other unusual deaths that have been prevalent among all owners and those related to this deathly island.

4. Doll Island

This island is located very close to Mexico City. It is a place where ghosts of children walk as reported by most story tellers and those who have visited this island. It is more often said that the island is more like a shrine that is dedicated to a little girl who had been killed in the area. The reason for which there are hundreds and hundreds of dolls on the island is because of a man who had lived on it for around 50 years. He is remembered for his preaching the word of God in the streets of Mexico. The name of the man was Don Julian. When he was turned out of the city, he preferred to move to this island. It has been said that the story of the canal girl has never been proved, but Don always said that he had hung dolls all over the land in order to turn away demons who are trying to torture the girl in the afterlife. He himself had died in weird circumstances and found dead at the same place where the girl had died.

1. Cat Island

This weird island has only a few hundred residents or even less. The reason for which it has been named this way is the presence of a number of cat breeds. Cats were brought to this island long ago in order to keep the mice away from the place. The large population that had brought these cats to the island had left suddenly. However, the cats have been constantly supplied with food by the fisherman who travel to this part of the world more often. There is also a shrine dedicated to these cats primarily because the sailors consider them as a sign of good luck for them. Tourists are indeed allowed to travel to this island but with no dogs. So if you think that your luck is out, then travel to Cat Island.
