It has similar length and width (approx 18 km / 11 ml) and covers a total land area of approx 332.6 km2 (128 ml2).

Annette Island Reserve (Metlakatla Indian Community) is currently the only remaining Alaskan Indian reservation as the locals voted to not give up their lands under the Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act. Metlakatla was founded by William Duncan (an Anglican church missionary / Church Missionary Society member). Since the late 19th century, Annette Island is an Indian reservation territory.

Most of the island is served by a network of unimproved roads and trails developed during logging activities. There is a 24 km (15 ml) long cross-island road and an airfield (an USCG base). The main road connects Metlakatla with the side facing Ketchikan, where is a ferry port (landing area) allowing access to to mainland Alaska via ferries. Metlakatla is also served by the Ketchikan Airport (Gravina Island, Inside Passage).
