Pangkajene Islands Regency (more accurately Pangkajene and Islands Regency - Kabupaten Pangkajene Dan Kepulauan) is a regency of South Sulawesi Province of Indonesia. Notwithstanding the name, the regency lies primarily on the mainland of Sulawesi's southern peninsula, but includes the Spermonds Islands (Kepulauan Spermonde) off the west coast of that peninsula. The principal town lies at Pangkajene, but there are a series of further towns like Lejang, Labakkang, Bontobonto and Segeri proceeding northwards from Pangkajene along the Trans-Sulawesi Highway.
