Shuwaikh Island (Arabic: جزيرة الشويخ‎‎), also known as Akkaz Island, is a former island of Kuwait within Kuwait Bay. The former island is now joined to Kuwait's Shuwaikh industrial area as an extension via land bridge and therefore no longer exists as an island.

The area is an archaeological site with pieces dating back to 2000 BC.
