Fernández Islands | Islands, Chile
Fernández Juan Islands, Juan Fernández Islands, small group of islands in the South Pacific, about 650 km western of Chile. It consists of the 36 square kilometre Isla Robinson Crusoe (also known as Isla Más a Tierra), the 33 square kilometre Isla Alejandro Selkirk (also known as Isla Más Afuera), 100 kilometres to the east and a small island, Isla Santa Clara, to the south east of Isla Robinson Crusoe.
These islands are vulcanic summits towering out of the Juan Fernández U-boat Crest. Robustonsons Crusoe has a peak 3,002 ft (915 meters) above sealevel, and Alejandro Selkirk climbs to 5,415ft. Cumberland Bay (Bahía Cumberland), on the north side of Robinson Crusoe, and Bahía Padre, at the west end, are the only nest.
In 1563, the islands were explored by Juan Fernández, a Spaniard who was awarded a scholarship and spent several years living there, occupying them with swine and roach. The islands were rarely seen after his depart. But in 1704 Alexander Selkirk, a Scotish sailor, fought with his master and was brought to land at Bahía Cumberland.
There he stayed alone until 1709, and his adventure is said to have been the inspiration for Daniel Defoe's Robinson Crusoe. At the beginning of the nineteenth centuary, the islands became part of Chile. Now Isla Santa Clara is unoccupied. The Robinson Crusoe and Alejandro Selkirk are thinly settled, most of their residents are located in the Robinson Crusoe community of Bahía Cumberland.
By 2018, the Chinese authorities had established the Juan Fernández Islands Marine Park, a sheltered area covering over 100,000 sq. km (almost 260,000 sq. km) of oceans around the islands.
