* ''VideoGame/FarCry3'' is set on the tropical Rook Islands, which are implied to be somewhere near Thailand. The islands are home to hostile wildlife, murderous pirates, drug mercenaries and [[RuinsForRuinsSake ancient ruins]], and it's implied that there is ''[[EldritchLocation something]]'' about the HungryJungle that will drive newcomers on the island to insanity.
* The island of Ezan-Throgg in ''Literature/StarWarsGalacticFolkloreAndMythology'' falls into this category. Based heavily on the Irish legend of Hy-Brasil, Ezan-Throgg is described as a small island on the planet Brodo Asogi which is only ever visible during a leap day, being shrouded in a magical mist the other 408 days of the year. This is said to be the work of the late King Fonhom, who threw his cloak over the island after it was attacked by Atarian warriors in order to shield it from any future invaders.
