Isla Robinson Crusoe before the Tsunami

The photo gallery shows island life and scenery of
Robinson Crusoe Island or Isla Robinson Crusoe the largest island of the Chilean Juan Fernandez Archipelago of Chile. It is 674 kilometres west of South America in the South Pacific Ocean.

These photographs were taken on Feb. 6, 2010. These islands were stuck by a large Tsunami wave on Feb. 26, 2010 caused by a large earthquake in Chile earlier in the day.

Our best wishes go out to all the islanders we met during our recent visit.
