Geography of Robinson Crusoe IslandRegión de Valparaiso
The island is hilly, formed by ancient lava flows that have been constructed from numerous volcanic episodes. The highest point of the island is 3,005 feet (916m) above sea level in El Yunque. Intense erosion has led to the formation of deep valleys and ridges. A narrow peninsula has been formed in the southwestern part of the island called Cordón Escarpado. The Santa Clara island is located 1.5 km off the southern coast of the island. The western end of the island is lower and drier than other parts. The climate is distinctly Mediterranean, with warm and clearly defined dry summers and cold and wet winters.
