Ostrov Yunosti (Russian: Остров Юности) is a river island in the center of the city of Irkutsk, Russia. This island is covered with woodland and is a popular place for walking. Other attractions include cafes and discos.

A bridge joins the island to the river bank, close to the river fountain and the monument of Alexander III.

On August 19, 2012, a 23-year-old female Harvard graduate has committed suicide by hanging from the bridge connecting this island with the Konnyi Island.
