The largest of the Donovan Islands, about 11 km north-west of Casey station. The island has a number of large Adelie penguin rookeries. Photographed by USN Operation Highjump (1946-47). An expedition led by Phillip Law attempted an approach in Kista Dan on 20 January, 1956, but a landing could not be made because of the shallow water. However, low level photographs were taken from the expedition's aircraft. Named Chappel Island by USACAN.
