Timagha Island (IPA: /'tɪmʌɣə/, Native language: Island, IPA: //), is an island belonging to the Kingdom of Herdek located in the Gulf of Timagha, Sea of Alpa. It is the fourth farthest island from the kingdom, with a minimum distance from the mainland of approximately 96 km. Despite the proximity to the region of Huzek, Timagha Island belongs to the region of Zêdek, but, due to its distance, it also makes up a stand-alone district, together with the other islands of its archipelago. Timagha island is named after its most important city, Timagha.

The island was discovered by ancient populations from current Herdek, and was almost immediately settled by fishermen from all parts of the current kingdom. After a few centuries, the island had become a destination also for philosophers, writers, artists and scientists who wanted to leave the chaos of cities to fully immerse themselves in uncontaminated nature. In XX century, Herdekian government stated that the island was one of the best places of the kingdom to build an astronomic observatory, since it is far from any kind of light pollution. For this reason, in 1961, the first telescope of the Timagha's observatory was built. After that, many other telescopes were built and the island has become the main astronomic research place of the country.

Despite having many astronomic facilities, Timagha Island has a couple of cities on it. The main one is Timagha.
