Cue the Jaws music. There’s something about sharks that sends shivers up our spines. Perhaps it’s that spooky dorsal fin slicing through the waters, the knowledge that these predators have a multiple rows of razor-sharp teeth, or maybe it’s that “man-eating” bit that often accompanies the word “shark.” Sure, it’s true that most sharks are harmless. In fact, out of over 470 species of shark, only four tend to perpetrate a significant amount of fatal unprovoked attacks on people. Those would be the great white, oceanic whitips, bull and tiger sharks. If you take the time to learn about sharks, you’ll find them to be fascinating creatures you don’t need to live in fear of – except, maybe, in the following beaches.
According to statistics, these are the world’s most dangerous beaches when it comes to deadly shark attacks. Consider yourself warned.
