List of islands of Albania

This is a list of islands of Albania. The majority of islands in Albania are very small; only two are larger than a square kilometer: Sazan Island and Kunë Island. Albania has a number of islands in the Mediterranean, and some other islands are found in the three biggest lakes in the Balkans within Albania, and others in smaller lakes. Below is a list sorted by location, sea or lake.
