 Tiburón Island

Mexico, Northwest

English (vertaal deze tekst in Nederlands): Tiburón Island (in Spanish: Isla del Tiburón or Isla Tiburón) is both the largest island in the Gulf of California and the largest island in Mexico, with an area of 464 square miles (1201 square kilometers). It was made a nature reserve in 1963 by President López Mateos. Tiburón is Spanish for "shark".

Tiburón Island is part of the state of Sonora, as well as the municipality of Hermosillo, and is located at approximately the same latitude as the city of Hermosillo. It is located along the eastern shore of the Gulf of California, opposite Isla Ángel de la Guarda. It is part of the chain of islands known as the Midriff Islands or Islas Grandes.

The island is presently uninhabited (except for a military installation on the eastern side of the island) and is administered as an ecological preserve by the Seri tribal government, in conjunction with the federal government.

The island can be reached from Punta Chueca, which is the nearest community, inhabited by members of the Seri tribe, and from Bahía de Kino, a (non-Indian) community 34 km to the south. The distance from Punta Chueca to Punta Tormenta, the nearest point on the island is 3 km. The channel between the mainland and the island is called Canal del Infiernillo (Hell's Channel), due to the strong tidal flow and shoal water that occur there which can make for challenging maritime navigation. The island has a prominent mountain system of volcanic origin. Source: Wikipedia.org
