Ok so I found an airfield where a Pell Silverbolt spawns, and I extracted to it a few times just to steal it to save me having to pay $30k for it whenever I want one. I flew towards the island in the most north western corner of the map. You can't miss it, it's the one in the top left corner with no location markers on it.
So I'm getting close to it, and the sky goes black. I'm just thinking, "Ahh shit, thunder storm. This is cool to fly in, though!". I see this big tower looming off in the distance. Looks like the tower of Sauron's eye from LOTR. So now I'm thinking, "Wtf is that thing?!", because I can see the top of it glowing and electricity emanating from it.
Then it happens.. My plan gets a smack of lightning from somewhere ((I'm assuming form the tower)). Somehow, I manage to jump out before it explodes and I parachute onto the island. It's full of tiny towers, small versions of the big one, all linked into the big one. Plenty of enemies, but nothing to blow up.
Anybody else had an experience with this place? Is it something to do with the storyline for later, or just a big mystery island?

Welcome to the forum.
Firstly, the island is called "Hantu Island".
There's an Ular Boys mission ("Stranded") on that island, which explains it all, but if you want to spoil one of the most epic missions ever then look at these:
I personally think you guys should try out killing all the gaurds in the beach head fortress area its like a warzone or something its loads of killing fun even if you have to charge miniguns and heavys its really fun

Every time I drive fast on a bridge on the island it tryst to steer me off the bridge

I don't know why but in a big formation of small towers there's a japenese helix on a landing pad I was at the top of the big tower and saw all the small one and thought it was a town but its like a troop area with small bunkers and flak guns every where and then I thought they were Japanese because if you look closely they don't look like the other regular spoilers in the game

It's a shame the tower is no longer active after you complete the faction mission for the Ular Boys. Trying to evade the lighting strike (which is most likely impossible) would be great fun.

There is also an island where you can find the boats that you get from the Black Market, but I forget which island it is.
