Alexander Selkirk's Island
The island Selkirk was marooned on.
Alexander Selkirk was marooned on the larger of these two islands. In his day it was called the Island of Juan Fernandez. In order to capitalize on tourism the Chilean government renamed it Robinson Crusoe Island and changed the name of the smaller Santa Clara Island to Selkirk Island.

Robinson Crusoe Island is a desolate, rugged extinct volcano that sits in the Pacific Ocean about 400 miles west of Valparaiso, Chile. Its 40 square miles of surface rise precipitously out of the ocean and peaks at just over 3,000 feet (915 meters). The island now has a population of about six hundred people, who mostly survive by trapping lobsters.
