Monday's Riddle: An Island At Large...


Hello, Riddlers! Can you guess our theme? I would love to visit, but that's about it. ; ) ~ F

I'm an island in a bay, but not a place you'd want to stay. Surrounded by sharks, the water's deep; the shores are sharp, and the men don't sleep. A visit puts you in a cell, it's less like vacation and more like hell. Built to house those deemed bad, my walls have turned some men mad. There's no escape once you're here; I'm the rock they all fear. Hosting criminals was my charge, when kept with me they were not at large.

What am I?

I gave you a clue!

CLUE!

  2. I think it's Alcatraz...I toured the island off San Francisco years ago and it's spooky to say the least.

  9. I vote for Alcatraz too. Though I suspect it is true of any island prison.

  12. Yep, definitely Alcatraz. I think I would have figured it out even without the photo of Al Capone! Great riddle.
