The Colombian island of Santa Cruz del Istile has the unofficial status of the most densely populated island in the world. On it live at the expense of fishing and tourism about 500 people.

On the coral base of the island , 115 houses are built, forming as many as ten districts. There is no running water on Santa Cruz del İstal, electricity is produced by solar panels and generators, and people are buried on the neighboring island by their dead.

In 2017, no one died on Santa Cruz del Isle, but seven children were born. Every year it is visited by thousands of tourists who publish in social networks picturesque pictures of narrow streets and piers covering the whole settlement.
