Isla Cruces is an island in Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest.
Isla Cruces (Crosses Island) is a tropical island where Davy Jones buried the Dead Man's Chest containing his beating heart. The island appears to have been abandoned. The previous occupants are unknown, but the partially remaining stone buildings indicate some European-type colony, probably Spanish, was once established there.
Behind the Scenes
It is not revealed in the film why Davy Jones buried the Dead Man's Chest on Isla Cruces. However, the film's writers, Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio, imply in the Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest DVD audio commentary, that Jones chose it because it is a plague island that remains deserted.

In a plan to seek the Dead Man's Chest, Captain Jack Sparrow began to recognize Isla Cruces via use of his compass, sending James Norrington to help dig the chest for him. Upon the arrival of William Turner Jr., a chase ensues during his arrival followed by a group of Dutchman pirates sent by Davy Jones to go after the chest throughout the chase.
The chase later continues across the island's tropical jungles to which the chase stops when Jack, Will, and Norrington fight for the key during a battle on the old mill wheel, which became separated and started rolling towards the beach in a competitive combat. Though Jack took the heart of Davy Jones, it ended up in possession of Norrington with the empty chest handed to Davy Jones. The pirates manage to leave the island just before Davy Jones summoned the Kraken to destroy the Black Pearl.
- The relevant scenes were actually filmed in Dominica and Great Exuma, The Bahamas.
