Shima-Isobe Station (志摩磯部駅?, Shima-Isobe-eki) is a railway station in Shima, Mie Prefecture, operated by Kintetsu Railway. The station is 57.5 rail kilometers from the terminus of the line at Ise-Nakagawa Station.

The line was one of six private companies consolidated into Mie Kotsu by order of the Japanese government on February 11, 1944. When Mie Kotsu dissolved on February 1, 1964, the station became part of the Mie Electric Railway, which was then acquired by Kintetsu on April 1, 1965. The station was rebuilt and renamed to its present name on March 1, 1970.
