Introduction:

Isla Caja de Muertos is locally known as Coffin Island due to the island’s coffin-like profile, as visible in the image above. Other locals say that a love story between a pirate and his lover, who he supposedly buried here, was involved in the naming.

Isla Caja de Muertos lies about 6 miles to the south of the popular marina anchorage in Ponce, and is generally used as a “staging” area for cruisers making extended journeys to other islands. Isla Caja de Muertos is 30 miles to the southeast of Guanica and 49 miles southwest of San Juan.


Navigating the Water:

Approaching from the ocean, the 244-foot-high top of Isla Caja de Muertos is visible at least 10 to 12 miles away depending on visibility. To further aid navigation, a gray lighthouse (flashing white every 30 seconds) stands 297 feet above the highest point on the island.

There are two anchorages on Isla Caja de Muertos. The first is located on the northern end of the island on its west side and it is fairly open and rough at most times. A better choice is to pick the anchorage on the southwest end of the island where you can tuck in a small cove for protection, although any west or northwest wind will make conditions rough here.
