Robinson Crusoe Island (Chile)
48 km2 / 19 mile2
Robinson Crusoe Island, formerly known as Más a Tierra, is an island situated 670 km (362 nmi; 416 mi) west of San Antonio, Chile, in the South Pacific Ocean. From 1704 to 1709, the island was home to the marooned sailor Alexander Selkirk, who at least partially inspired novelist Daniel Defoe's fictional Robinson Crusoe in his 1719 novel, although the novel is explicitly set in the Caribbean. To reflect the literary lore associated with the island and attract tourists, the Chilean government renamed the place Robinson Crusoe Island in 1966.
