Limitrophe Island is an oval-shaped Antarctic island 0.9 kilometres (0.5 nmi) long, lying directly east of Christine Island and 1.9 kilometres (1 nmi) south of Anvers Island. Limitrophe Island was given a suggestive name by Palmer Station personnel in 1972, because Limitrophe Island lies at the limit of normal field operations from the station.
