Round Rock is an uninhabited island in the British Virgin Islands, to the south of Virgin Gorda, east of Ginger Island[1] and close to Fallen Jerusalem Island.

The island provides habitat for the crested anole (Anolis cristatellus wileyae),[2] the common Puerto Rican ameiva (Ameiva exsul exsul), a type of skink (Mabuya mabouya sloanel), and the big-scaled least gecko (Sphaerodactylus macrolepis macrolepis).[3]
