An island or isle is any piece of sub-continental land that is surrounded by water. Very small islands such as emergent land features on atolls can be called islets, skerries, cays or keys. An island in a river or a lake island may be called an eyot or ait, and a small island off the coast may be called a holm. A grouping of geographically or geologically related islands is called an archipelago, such as the Philippines, for example.

Beautiful, isn't it?

Antikythera Island

This is a satellite view from 2013 of an 8 square mile island located just northwest of Crete and is home to only a population of about 50 people. Steep, limestone cliffs line most of the island and the island has a rather long history both on and around it. The Antikythera mechanism, believed to be the world's first computer, was discovered in a shipwreck off the coast of this island.
