If shown, area and population ranks are for all islands and all inhabited islands in the Falklands respectively.

The Arch Islands (Spanish: Islotes Franceses[1]) are a group of small islands, off Port Albemarle on West Falkland in the Falkland Islands. They are uninhabited, and accessible only by boat. They are so called because the largest of the group has a natural arch in it, large enough to allow a fair sized boat through.

The islands include:

  • Big Arch Island
  • Clump Island
  • Tussac Island
  • Pyramid Rock
  • Last Rock
  • Albemarle Rock
