Hutchinson Island is a river island in the Savannah River, north of downtown Savannah. The island is formed where the Back River breaks off to the north from the Savannah River. Historically, Hutchinson Island's land use has been primarily industrial, much of which supported the Port of Savannah, one of the busiest containerization cargo ports in the world. The island is roughly 7 miles long and 1 mile wide at its widest point.

Until recently, most of the island was vacant land. It is now being developed into a major mixed-use development which contains the Westin Savannah Harbor Resort, the Savannah International Maritime Trade and Convention Center, and a significant number of retail and residential properties. Hutchinson Island serves primarily as a resort. Hutchinson Island can be accessible by free ferry or the Talmadge Bridge.
