The Juan Fernández islands were made famous by Defoe’s Robinson Crusoe (inspired by the real life adventures of Alexander Selkirk). Discovered in 1574, the group is made up of the islands Robinson Crusoe, Alejandro Selkirk and Santa Clara and with rugged scenery and challenging walking, tourism is slowly growing.
