Narrative

A small island that lies 0.6 mi S of Andrews Point and close to the NE side of Anvers Island. The feature is situated at the SE side of Hackapike Bay and is not to be confused with Pear Island and False Island which are just northeastward. Charted from the Penola by the BGLE (1934-37) under John Rymill. The name is presumed to be descriptive and dates back to about 1952.
