Considered to be the largest and highest island found off the Peruvian coast, it is eight kilometers long, three kilometers wide and 370 meters high. Here, you can find natural caves, abysses, beaches and ravines that offer magical views. The historian Francisco Quiroz proved that the English pirate Jacobo Heremite Clerck, who died in 1624, is buried on this island. The island also served as a refuge for the Spanish Armada in 1866 during the Battle of Angamos. At the moment, the deserted island is controlled by the Navy. It is accessible by boat or by ferry, which leaves from Puerto del Callao. The journey takes about 30 minutes on average.
