The climax is the most intense moment of the story, or a turning point in the story. You can figure out what the climax is by looking at where we know the outcome of the main conflict. The climax usually occurs just before the resolution of the main conflict.

The main conflict of Treasure Island is the struggle of Jim and his group to beat Flint's former crewmembers to get to the treasure first. The climax of this story is when the pirates and Jim discover that the treasure has already been dug up. They return to England after that.
