Nedorazumeniya Island (Russian: Остров Недоразумения - Ostrov Nedorazumeniya; literally Island of misunderstanding) is an island located in the Sea of Okhotsk. It is located in the Amakhton Bay (Амахтонский залив; Amakhtonskiy Zaliv) off the end of the Nagayev Bay (Бухта Нагаева; Bukhta Nagayeva), or western harbor of Magadan, on the northern side, about 20 km away from the city.

Nedorazumeniya Island lies 3 kilometres (1.9 mi) off the coast and is roughly triangular in shape. It is 3.5 kilometres (2.2 mi) long and has a maximum width of about 2 kilometres (1.2 mi).

On Nedorazumeniya's northeastern landhead there is a settlement called Ribachiy.

Administratively Nedorazumeniya Island belongs to the Magadan Oblast of the Russian Federation.

The name of the island is remarkable. "Nedorazumeniye" in Russian means "misunderstaning", "error". The island got such a strange name because it was originally not mapped by a Russian expedition in the 1910th. Then the mistake was identified and corrected.
