Saqqarlersuaq Island (Greenland)
Saqqarlersuaq Island (old spelling: Sarqardlerssuaq) is an uninhabited island in the Qaasuitsup municipality in northwestern Greenland. Part of the Upernavik Archipelago, Saqqarlersuaq Island is located in the southern part of Melville Bay.
In the south, Saqqarlersuaq Island is separated from the much larger Kiatassuaq Island by the 11 km (6.8 mi) Saqqarlersuup Sullua strait. The strait connects the open waters of Melville Bay in the west with the outlet of Alison Bay in the northeast.
The highest point on the island is an unnamed 583 m (1,913 ft) peak in the southern part of the island.
