The island is part of the mainland surrounded by reservoirs. If we look at the globe, then all land can be called a huge island, right? And when we compare the largest island – Greenland, with the smallest continent – Australia, three Greenland could fit in the land of kangaroos.

Apart from similar discussions today, there are maps with the most important islands and island archipelagos. Due to a large amount of material, I divided the topic into two parts: in the first, I will show the islands around Eurasia, and in the other continents.

The maps come from Wikipedia and Google Maps. And as usual, please take a correction for minor inaccuracies in their graphic processing. At the archipelagos, in parentheses, I have included all the main islands. If you still need a higher resolution map, open the image in a separate tab.

I marked the islands or archipelagos with green, the larger islands of the archipelagos with orange, and the yellow groups of islands that are nearby so that the signatures are unambiguous.
