New islands are islands which have been created recently (since 20th century), whether by means of volcanism, erosion, glacial retreat, or other mechanisms.
|Ogasawara Islands||An Island provisionally named as Niijima emerged in november 2013, but has since Dec 26 joined Nishinoshima and ceased to be a separate island.|
|Surtsey||1963, formed in a volcanic eruption|
|Ujung Kulon National Park||Anak Krakatau (1927)|
