Byrne Island is a large island located in the Diamond Archipelago. There are three known routes from the island: Alpha Island, Papaya Island, and an inter-archipelago route to Remora Island in the Sapphire Archipelago. There is also an extinct training route encircling the island.
Byrne was home to Sheepish Jimmy, a sheep who at some point went missing, so he has been replaced with Sheepish Jimmy jr, and In Memory of Jerze, a cat placed in memoriam of the pirate Jerze.
This island spawns iron, sincosite, and sugar cane. These resources can be bid on at the market.
Buildings on Byrne are named after Talking Heads songs or albums.
