2. Klein Curacao

At just 1.7 square kilometers, Klein Curacao is an uninhabited island located southeast of the mainland in the Caribbean Sea. It was used to quarantine sick slaves that were transported by the Dutch West India Company from Africa to Curacao. Its first lighthouse was destroyed by a rare storm in 1877. It's currently a tourist attraction as well as a temporary stay for local fishermen.
