*** Perhaps becoming less true with development however. Places where a living can be made, but it's HARD, are increasingly abandoned by the younger generation.

In past centuries such islands could be found in every ocean, but these days it takes loads of {{Phlebotinum}} to keep them hidden. In ScienceFiction, a deserted moon or planet makes an acceptable substitute. Leaving these [[ClosedCircle closed circles]] is often made difficult.

In past centuries such islands could be found in every ocean, but these days it takes loads of {{Phlebotinum}} to keep them hidden. Note, however, that even though in this day and age about any island you can set foot upon was probably already visited by a human being, that doesn't mean you'll find any signs of human presence left on it. There are absolutely tons of islands that hardly ever see anybody visit them for a variety of reasons: maybe they're just too far away from the nearest inhabited place, maybe there's just nothing interesting on them to find. In fact, the very name "deserted" implies that somebody must have been there to desert it in the first place. At any rate, while your chances of finding yourself on one of them are miniscule compared to, say, the 18th century sailors, it's still 100% possible and does happen every once in a while.

* ''Videogame/MonsterHunter'' has a map ''called'' the Deserted Island. Subverted, in that it's supposed to be devoid of human life, but still has a spot of civilization, Moga Village, thriving on it. This is because during the events of ''Monster Hunter tri'' and ''[[UpdatedRerelease Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate]]'', the village received an order to evacuate the island due to a series of earthquakes threatening to level the village, but the village's inhabitants refused to leave, instead sending out the PlayerCharacter to hunt and defeat the source of the earthquake, which as it turns out is a massive underwater Elder Dragon. The map remains named such in ''Monster Hunter Generations'' despite taking place chronologically after ''3'', but was presumably kept for nostalgia purposes.
