In popular fiction the island is featured in Jules Verne's book 'Two Years' Vacation'. The book tells the story of 15 boys (aged between 8 and 14) from Auckland, New Zealand, who spent 2 years on this remote island as result of a storm, which cast their schooner upon the island's shore. There it is called "Chairman Island" after the name of the boys' boarding school.
On the continental side there is the Torres del Paine National Park.
