Veckatimest Island is one of the Elizabeth Islands, part of the town of Gosnold in Dukes County, Massachusetts, United States. The island has a land area of 0.0675 km² (0.026 sq mi, or 16.675 acres) and was uninhabited as of the 2000 census. [1]

The island received further recognition after Brooklyn band Grizzly Bear named their third studio album after it. The band's founding member, Ed Droste, is connected to the Forbes family, who own Naushon Island, through his mother Diana Forbes.
