Isla Cruces is an island in the 2006 film Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest. The relevant scenes were actually filmed on Dominica.


In Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest, Isla Cruces (Crosses Island) is the island where Davy Jones buried the Dead Man's Chest containing his beating heart. The once-inhabited island appears to have been abandoned. It is unknown who the previous occupants were, but judging by the partially-remaining stone buildings, some type of European colony (probably Spanish) was once established here. A church ruin provides the backdrop for a fight between Jack Sparrow, James Norrington, and Will Turner.

Movie Notes

In the DVD commentary, the island is said to have be ravaged by a plague, killing the population. It also said the Priest was the only person left alive, to bury all the dead. Over time he went crazy and hung himself.
