Location of Holland Island




Holland Island (click here for map) is the southern most part of Dorchester County, Maryland. Its western side faces the Chesapeake Bay and its east side faces Holland Straits. All sides of the one and one-half mile long island are surrounded by shallow water of from one to three feet of depth.

The island acts as a buffer to a vast area of Holland Straits. Its status as a barrier island to thousands of acres of wetlands to the east of it provides protection from the Chesapeake Bay storms that typically impact the east side of the bay.
