Telan Island, also Ostrov Telan, is an island in the Sea of Okhotsk, roughly 1 miles south-south-west of Mys Vnutrenniy. It is described as "a very conspicuous island resembling a castle."[1]


The island is located at the southern end of the Taygonos Peninsula that separates the Gizhigin Bay from the Penzhina Bay. It is roughly triangular in shape and has a maximum length of 1.7 km; it is separated from the continental shore by a 0.5 km wide sound.

Administratively Telan Island is part of the Magadan Oblast.[2]
