Isla Mocha, Chile

Mocha island is a small Chilean island located west of the coast of Arauco Province in the Pacific Ocean. The island has a small chain of mountains running north-south. The island today is home to the Mocha Island National Reserve, a nature preserve that covers approximately 45% of the island's surface.

The lush vegetation and fauna can be enjoyed through various outdoor activities. Many different activities like diving to view shipwrecks, long walks, horse riding, and fly-fishing can be enjoyed. The highest parts of the island are formed by two mountain ranges that run parallel to the coast and cross the island from north to south. There are two footpaths for excursions clearly sign-posted.
