The most remote island is Bouvet Island, an uninhabited and small Norwegian island in the South Atlantic Ocean. It lies at coordinates 54degrees 26′ S 3 degrees 24′ E. The nearest land is the uninhabited Queen Maud Land, Antarctica, over 1,600 km (994 miles) away to the south. The nearest inhabited land is Tristan da Cunha, 2,260 km (1,404 miles) away and South Africa, 2,580 km (1,603 miles) away.

Located about midway between Cape Town, South Africa and Buenos Aires, Argentina lies what is often referred to as the world's most remote inhabited island - Tristan da Cunha. Tristan da Cunha is the primary island of the Tristan da Cunha island group, consisting of six islands.
