Lundey, literally "Puffin Island" in Icelandic, is a small, uninhabited island off the western coast of Reykjavík, Iceland. It is about 400 metres (1,300 ft) long and 150 metres (490 ft) wide. Its highest point lies about 14 metres (46 ft) above sea level. The island serves as a haven for seabirds, including Atlantic puffins, black guillemots, fulmars and Arctic terns. There are two other islands known as Lundey in Iceland: one in Skagafjörður fjörd and the other in Skjálfandi bay, both in north Iceland.
