The Cinque Islands are a pair of islands in the Andaman Archipelago, on the north side of Duncan Passage, between Rutland Island and Passage Island. They are part of the Andaman and Nicobar Islands Union Territory of India.

The two islands are connecetd by a sand bar and therefore are often considered a single Cinque Island.

The Cinque Islands are a famous underwater diving spot. The branch of Duncan Passage between North Cinque and Rutland is called Manners Strait.
