Villa Puerto Eden is a Chilean hamlet and minor port located in Wellington Island, in Natales commune, Ultima Esperanza Province, Magallanes Region. It is considered one of Chile's most isolated inhabited places together with Easter Island and Villa Las Estrellas. The villages is known for being the home of the last Kaweshkar people. It is only accessible by sea, on the Navimag ferry from Puerto Montt in the north, or Puerto Natales in the south. There is also a monthly boat from Caleta Tortel.
The population is 176 (2002 census).
Notably, the village has no roads, with only pedestrian boardwalks connecting the houses and shops. A weekly transport boat takes local fish and shellfish products (the latter mainly mussels) to markets.
