Ammassalik Island seen from Kulusuk Island
Location within Greenland
|Area||772 km2 (298 sq mi)|
The island is separated from the mainland of Greenland by the wide Sermilik Fjord in the west, and by the Ikaasartivaq Strait in the northeast. In the east and southeast the southern, progressively wider half of the Ammassalik Fjord separates the island from an archipelago of islands, including the largest Apusiaajik Island, and Kulusuk Island across the Torsuut Tunoq sound. The southern coast of the island is washed by the waters of the open North Atlantic. The highest point of the island is a glaciated peak in the northern part, at 1,352 m (4,435.7 ft).
