Coloane ( Simplified: 路環島, Traditional: 路环岛, Pinyin: Lùhuán Dǎo, Jyutping: Lou6-waan4 Dou2, literally "Road Ring") is an island of Macau in the People's Republic of China.
South of Taipa (connected to it by the 2.2-km land-fill bridge, the Estrada do Istmo) and west of Greater Hengqing Island (大横琴岛) of Zhuhai, Coloane is 5.6 from peninsular Macau. The narrowest part of Coloane is 300 metres. Eastern and central Coloane is the highest part of Macau, with the highest point being the 171-metre Zhongdie Shitang Mountain (中疊石塘山). The northern shore of the island is 4.5 deep, and will be the site of the Macau Deepwater Port. The eastern Heisha Bay (黑沙灣 "Black-sand") and the southern Zhu Bay (竹灣 "Bamboo") are popular swimming areas.
