Pleneau Island is located northeast of Hovgaard Island, in the Wilhelm Archipelago, Antarctica.
- The isle was initially charted as a peninsula of Hovgaard Island (close to the south) by a French expedition (1903–1905) under Jean-Baptiste Charcot (1867-1936). He named its northeast point after Paul Pleneau, the expedition's photographer. The peninsula was first shown to be an isle on an Argentine government chart of 1957.
- Pleneau island has length of just 1,5 km (0,8 ml). It features a cobbled beach on its eastern coast, with rock terraces sloping upwards towards a large icecap covering the western parts.
- The fauna is represented by seabirds (south polar skuas, Dominican gulls, blue-eyed shags, Antarctic terns, Gentoo penguins) nesting on the island. Tourists may also see southern elephant seals. Grounded icebergs occupy Pleneau Bay (on the western shore).
