The uninhabited island of Barther Oie belongs to the German federal state of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern and lies in the lagoon of Barther Bodden, between the town of Barth and the Baltic seaside resort of Zingst.

The Baltic Sea island has an area of about 850 × 800 metres and rises, like its sister island of Kirr, only one metre above sea level. Today the island is a nature reserve in the West Pomeranian Lagoon Area National Park.
