Reedy Island is a small island in the middle of the channel of the Delaware River near its mouth on Delaware Bay in the U.S. state of Delaware. It is located approximately one mile (1.6 km) east of Port Penn, Delaware and five miles (8.0 km) southwest of Salem, New Jersey.

The island was the location of Reedy Island Range Front Light. The Reedy Island Range Rear Light, in nearby Taylors Bridge, is a historic lighthouse first established in 1910. The light is operated by the United States Coast Guard. The nearby keeper's house was destroyed by arson in 2002.
