The Islote de Sancti Petri is a small barren island belonging to the municipality of San Fernando, Cádiz in the province of Cádiz and the autonomous region of Andalusia, Spain. For many years, the island was a restricted military zone, but it is now under the control of the Spanish Environment Ministry.

The ruins of an eighteenth-century castle remain on the island; the tower of the castle has been substantially rebuilt, and it is now in use as a lighthouse. It was declared Bien de Interés Cultural in 1993.
The name, Sancti Petri, also applies to the beach on the mainline, in Chiclana de la Frontera, directly opposite the island.
