Liputan6.com, Jakarta – Exploring an archipelago full of natural beauty, white sand beaches, beautiful coral reefs, and a clear expanse of sea water, often a holiday option for marine lovers.

Before it's too late, underwater beauty enthusiasts should visit some of the places below. Because in the next few decades, the location will not be able to be visited again.

Quoted from News.com.au on Sunday (12/06/2016), due to rising sea levels, erosion and pollution – as a result of climate change – leaving the seven islands in the world threatened with drowning, along with the loss of flora and fauna wild inside.

Here are more 7 islands in the world almost drowned:

1. Maldives

Maldives or more often referred to as 'heaven of the world', is a country consisting of about 1,190 islands in the Indian Ocean.

The location is surrounded by beautiful white sand beaches, luxury resorts, thatched huts, and turquoise waters. Not surprisingly, the place of heaven's tub is a popular location for the seekers of nature enjoyment.

If you already have the intention to visit the 'paradise of the world', you should act quickly.

Because of its location just a few meters above sea level, scientists estimate, in the space of 100 years, the place will drown.

This is due to climate change.

2. Seychelles, AfricaA collection of 115 islands along with beautiful beaches, majestic cliffs, lush forests, clear water, and five-star resorts located off the east coast of Africa.

But unfortunately, if you do not immediately set foot in that place in the near future, the most likely is you will not be able to see the beauty of nature again.

Scientists have predicted, within 50 years, the Seychelles, will soon be merged with the vast ocean and lost forever.

This is due to the destruction of coral reefs, due to climate change and erosion.
