The Po Toi Islands (Chinese: 蒲台羣島, originally 蒲苔羣島) are a small group of islands with a population of around 200, south-east of Hong Kong Island, off Stanley, in Hong Kong. The main island of the group is Po Toi Island. Administratively, they are part of Islands District.
The islands are notable for interesting rock formations and open-air seafood restaurants. Po Toi Island has a "haunted house", and some rock carvings supposed to be the epitaph of an emperor who died on or near Po Toi. Waglan Island has one of the five surviving pre-war lighthouses in Hong Kong.

- Castle Rock (螺洲白排)
- Lo Chau (螺洲, Beaufort Island)
- Mat Chau (墨洲), an islet off Po Toi island
