Governors Island is a Canadian island located in Hillsborough Bay, a sub-basin of the Northumberland Strait along the south shore of Prince Edward Island.

The island is located at 46'08"N, 63'04"W, approximately 7 kilometres (4 nautical miles) south from Keppoch and 7 km (4 nmi) north from Point Prim.

Roughly triangular in shape with an area of 32 hectares (80 acres), the western point of Governors Island was used in the past for a lobster processing facility and the remainder of the land was used as an area to graze sheep and cattle. Privately owned, the island had a small airstrip developed during the 1960s but has since fallen into disuse.
