L'isola dei Cappuccini è un isolotto di quasi 3000 m2 situato a meno di 500 metri a nord-ovest della penisola della Costa Smeralda in Gallura, nella costa nord-orientale della Sardegna. 

L'isola è cosi chiamata per via del convento dei Frati Cappuccini, oggi abbandonato, che sorge sulla parte più alta dell’isola. 

Fa parte del Parco Internazionale delle Bocche di Bonifacio, ma diversamente dalle altre isole presenta alcune strutture ricettive, possiede un piccolo porticciolo per l'approdo delle barche.
