List of islands in the Adriatic

This is a list of islands in the Adriatic Sea.

There are approximately 1200 islands in total, 69 of which are inhabited. A recent study by the Institute of Oceanography from 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 added the small islands in the Italian lagoons of Venice and Grado and the so-called "islands of the Po delta".

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