Urban Explorers 'Sneak On To Epstein's Private Island' In Extremely Rare Footage

Urban Explorers 'Sneak On To Epstein's Private Island' In Extremely Rare Footage

A pair of urban explorers have claimed that they snuck onto Jeffrey Epstein's private island, Little Saint James.


The island, located in the US Virgin Islands, has been dormant since the death of Epstein, but urban explorer Andy Bracco - otherwise known as Place Hacker - and his mate Jon Megna, decided to get ashore last year.

From the footage, shared on YouTube and TikTok, it seems as if they managed to visit some of the more famous landmarks on Epstein's $64 million 70-acre tropical paradise.


Video appears to show the pair near to the gigantic sundial, as well as the blue and white 'temple' that sits atop a hill.

The island attained notoriety in 2019 after it was raided by the FBI and subsequently dubbed 'orgy island' and the 'island of sin' by the media following accusations of sex trafficking and soliciting underage prostitutes by Epstein.

According to an interview given to The Sun last year, Bracco said that the island is still patrolled by security guards.

He said: "There is active security there - I visited the site twice over the week and one of the times was in daytime, which was a little bit riskier.

"The route we took we avoided a lot of the cameras on the island - along with the workers and guards.

"We got pretty lucky. But we planned it a few months ahead, spoke to locals and we knew what we were dealing with.

"I wouldn't suggest anyone go there unless you really know what you are doing."


Another thing that Bracco said they noticed was that some of the construction on the lavish island actually seemed a bit naff.

The temple, for instance, had a roof that blew away, as well as fake doors with monograms of Epstein's initials painted on them.

He continued: "It's very strange to know how much money this guy had to see such a low quality of a structure there.

"It makes you think, is this a distraction from something else?"

Obviously, some of the security systems on the island are still active, as one of them gave Bracco and his pal a fright once they got ashore.

"There was one super serious part when we didn't account for what I believe was an infrared camera by the communications tower," he said.

"It was pointing directly at us, and if there was a sensor facing us and depending on what software they had it could have set off an alarm. So we had to rush off pretty quickly."


It goes without saying, this sort of thing is not the sort of thing that you should attempt, because it's very silly and could get you into a whole heap of trouble.
