The island was home to the marooned sailor Alexander Selkirk from 1704 to 1709, and is thought to have inspired novelist Daniel Defoe's fictional Robinson Crusoe in his 1719 novel about the character. To reflect the literary lore associated with the island and to lure tourists, the Chilean government renamed the location Robinson Crusoe Island in 1966.
The main airstrip on the island is near the tip of the island's southwestern peninsula. Two airlines offer weekly flights from Chile which take 1:50 minutes.
