* There's a Turtle Island in the first book of DavidDrake's ''Literature/TheLordOfTheIsles'' series. True to Drake's own brand of "realistic" fantasy, the only life present is sea plants.

* Several mythical creatures fill this role. Fastiocalon, Jasconius, Aspidochelone, and Zaratan. Depending on who's telling the story, it's either a turtle, a whale, a fish, or even a crab. Often in modern retellings, the creatures are all just one kind of island beast with multiple names.
