From backside postcard:
The Juan Fernández Islands are a sparsely inhabited island group reliant on tourism and fishing in the South Pacific Ocean. Situated 670 km off the coast of Chile, they are composed of three main volcanic islands: Robinson Crusoe, Alejandro Selkirk and Santa Clara. Most of the archipelago's present-day inhabitants reside on Robinson Crusoe Island, mainly in the capital, San Juan Bautista, at Cumberland Bay on the island's north coast. The group of islands are part of Chile's Valparaíso Region (which also includes Easter Island), and along with the Desventuradas Islands, form one of the nine communes of Valparaíso Province named Juan Fernández.
The islands are primarily known for having been the home to the marooned sailor Alexander Selkirk for more than four years from 1704. His experience was the raw material that inspired Daniel Defoe to write world famous Robinson Crusoe, first published in April 1719.
Juan Fernández Archipelago National Park is located in the Pacific Ocean and covers 96 square kilometres and comprises the Santa Clara, Alejandro Selkirk and the most part of the Robinson Crusoe Island islands. It was declared a Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO in 1977, and became a National Park in 1935.
