Two Boats is a village at the foot of Green Mountain, Ascension Island, about 3 miles from Wideawake Airfield. It has a population of about 120 and is residential in nature.

Two Boats is also the site of the Two Boats Club (bar and snackbar with regular live music), a large fresh water swimming pool, children’s playground, and Two Boats School, the island's only school.

The two boats were originally placed to provide shade for Royal Marines transporting water in the 19th century.
