List of islands in the Adriatic

A majority of the Adriatic sea islands are located in the northeastern Adriatic, near the Croatian coast.

There are more than 1200 islands in the Adriatic Sea, 69 of which are inhabited. A recent study by the Institute of Oceanography in Split (2000) shows that there are 1246 islands: 79 large islands, 525 islets, and 642 ridges and rocks. Italian Scuola di Geografia of Genova states that the number is greater if one includes the small islands in the Italian lagoons of Venice and Grado, and the so-called "islands of the Po delta".
