Arabi Island (Arabic: جزيرة العربية‎) is one of the Saudi Arabian islands near Farsi Island in the Persian Gulf. The island measures ten hectares in area.

Along with Farsi, Arabi was once the subject of a territorial dispute between Iran and Saudi Arabia, but the two countries came to an agreement in the 1960s, in which Iran ceded sovereignty of Arabi to Saudi Arabia.[1]
