Eten is an island in the Truk Lagoon, in the Federated States of Micronesia. It is located just to the south of Dublon Island.

This small island was extensively bulldozed by Japanese forces during World War II to turn it into an airstrip.[1] There are remains of military buildings and wrecked aircraft on the island. Visitors can also climb Mount Uinku.[2]
