In the SVG version, hover over a peak to highlight its parent(s) and click it to view its article.

Other notable island peaks

Many of the following islands are selected for inclusion as the main island or having the highest peak in their island nation. The list includes some dependent or semi-dependent island overseas territories with their own ISO 3166-1 country code. The dependencies of Guernsey (Alderney, Sark, Herm) and St. Helena (Tristan da Cunha, Ascension Island) are listed as separate units.

Nevis (Saint Kitts-Nevis) is also listed separately. The islands of the former Netherlands Antilles (Aruba, Curaçao, Bonaire, Saint Martin, Sint Eustatius, Saba) have been split up in separate units.

The list also includes other notable islands, for example some islands that are the highest island mountain of its country or autonomous region.
