Reyneke Island (Russian: Остров Рейнеке; Ostrov Reyneke) is an island in the Sea of Okhotsk, administratively part of Khabarovsk Krai, Russia.[2] The uninhabited island lies 45 kilometres (28 miles) to the south-east of Menshikov Island, and has an area of approximately 7 kilometres (4.3 miles) in length and a maximum width of 1.6 kilometres (0.99 miles). It is a mountainous island located close to a headland of the continental shore, separated from mainland Khabarovsk Krai by a 45 kilometres (28 miles) wide sound.[3]

Reyneke Island was named after Mikhail Reyneke, Vice Admiral of the Imperial Russian Navy and an early hydrographer of the Russian Hydrographic Service in the region.[4]
