The Chastye Islands (Russian: Острова Частые; Ostrova Chastye) is an island group in the southern end of the Sea of Okhotsk. It is located in Tatar Strait, between the mainland shore and the western coast of Sakhalin.[1] Although there are some settlements on the adjacent coast, the Chastye Islands are uninhabited.

Administratively the Chastye Islands belong to the Khabarovsk Krai of the Russian Federation.



These small islands are a home for a great variety of seabirds.[4][5]
