If it's for academics, I'd go with Crete as Atlantis. The Minoans were an ancient, seafaring culture with a high standard of living and apparent
gender equality. That had no fortification, and met their downfall at the explosion of a volcano on Santorini. The other advantage is its right in
the heart of where the myth spawned from.
If you want to try for a little out there, there's a guy who has a fairly logical theory for Indonesia. The premise is that 11,000 years ago
volcanic activity in the area spurred the end of the Ice age.
