This island lies to the north of Wollaston Foreland, separated from Thomas Thomsen Land in the mainland by a narrow sound, the Fligely Fjord. The Lindeman Fjord has its mouth to the southwest and the Hochstetter Bay of the Greenland Sea lies to the east. The mouths of Ardencaple Fjord and Grandjean Fjord open to the north.

The islands that are located further off the shore in the bay are Shannon Island to the NE and the Pendulum Islands to the SE.[4]
