The XV Island Games (also known as the 2013 NatWest Island Games for sponsorship reasons)[1] were held in Bermuda from 13 to 19 July 2013.[2] Bermuda was selected to host the Games by default after Prince Edward Island withdrew from the International Island Games Association.

It was the first time that the games were held outside Europe.[3]

Participating islands[edit]

22 island entities of the IIGA from Europe, South Atlantic and the Caribbean area competed in these games.[4] Rhodes and Sark declined their invitations to the games.[5]
