Aman Island is an islet off the coast of Seberang Perai in the State of Penang, Malaysia. This islet, along with the adjacent Gedung Island, falls within the jurisdiction of the South Seberang Perai District.

Famously known as the "Island of Peace", it is a home to a traditional Malay village. There are many interesting places to visit in Aman Island such as Jalan Telaga Emas, Batu Perompak and the nearby island of Gedung Island.[1]

It is said that Aman Island and Gedung Island were once owned by two brothers named Mr. Md Saad and his older brother. Saad died at the age of 99.
