Reinøya is an island in the municipality of Karlsøy in Troms county, Norway. The 147-square-kilometre (57 sq mi) lies directly east of the large island of Ringvassøya, and the small island of Karlsøya lies to the north of the island. The Ullsfjorden lies along the eastern coast of the island.
The southern part of the island was part of the municipality of Tromsø until 1 January 2008 when it was transferred to the municipality of Karlsøy. The undersea Langsund Tunnel is being built connecting the islands of Reinøya and Ringvassøya. This tunnel is scheduled to be completed in 2015.
