Perhaps the most rewarding and stunning hike on the island is to Selkirk's mirador above San Juan Bautista, where he would look for ships appearing on the horizon. The 3km walk, gaining 565m in elevation, takes about 1½ hours of steady walking but rewards the climber with views of both sides of the island.

As you walk up, look for the signpost marking a path to the supposed ruins of Selkirk's hut.
