A small island in the Tromsøysundet strait between the mainland and Kvaløya island in Tromsø municipality, Troms county.
It contains the city centre of Tromsø and several residential areas. Tromsø Airport is situated on the western side. The island is connected to Tromsdalen on the mainland to the east by the Tromsø Bridge and Tromsøysund Tunnel and it is connected to the village of Kvaløysletta on Kvaløya island to the west by the Sandnessund Bridge.
