On the other end of the island we walked to this pier from the airport. The "Blanca Luz" would then take us to Cumberland bay and San Juan Batista, the only village on Juan Fernandez. This particular island was renamed in the 1960s as Isla Robinson Crusoe. It apparently helped the tourism here. About 900 SCUBA divers visit Juan Fernandez each year. Seals live in this particular bay as it sheltered from the strong southerly winds and ocean currents. The pier is essentially a large long plie of rocks contained with heavy wire screen and pilings. We assume the Chilean government was responsible for installing many of the more permanent structures on the island such as the piers and roads. There was bulldozer tracks at the airport which was brought in by ship sometime in the near past. Large amouts of water and rain erosion were visible everywhere.
