Aspland Island is a small island 6 km (3.7 mi) west of Gibbs Island in the South Shetland Islands of Antarctica. The name dates back to at least 1821.

Birds[edit]

The island forms part of the Aspland Island and Eadie Island Important Bird Area, identified as such by BirdLife International because both islands support large colonies of Chinstrap Penguins.[1]
