The Swan Islands (Spanish: Islas del Cisne) are a small group of islands in the middle of Falkland Sound in the Falkland Islands, and comprising Swan Island and the smaller West Swan Island and North Swan Island.
The islands are low-lying, and mainly covered in tussac grass, with the birdlife common to most of the Falkland Islands.
