Rondo Island (Indonesian: Pulau Rondo, Acehnese: Pulo Rondo) is an outlying island of Indonesia and the country's northernmost island.[1] It has an area of 0.650 km². It is part of the Aceh province of Sumatra. Administratively this island is part of the city of Sabang, located on Weh Island south of Rondo. It borders India's Great Nicobar Island of the Nicobar Islands approximately 163 km to the north. Indira Point on Great Nicobar Island is India's southernmost point, and Rondo Island is Indonesia's northernmost.

India and Indonesia are planning to collaborate to construct a port at Sabang to protect the channel between Great Nicobar Island and Rondo Island (c. May 2019).[2]
