Shamin Island is a sandbank island in the Liwan District of Guangzhou city, Guangdong province, China. The island's name literally means "sandy surface" in Chinese.

Shamian Island was an important port for Guangzhou's foreign trade from the Song to the Qing Dynasty. From the 18th to the mid 19th century, the foreigners lived and did business in a row of houses known as the Thirteen Factories, near the present Shamian, which was then an anchorage for thousands of boat people.

沙面是珠江上的一个人工小岛,地处白鹅潭北部,与广州大陆隔着沙基涌相望. 沙面岛在历史上曾是英、法两国的租界,1860年代第二次鸦片战争前后,英法两国选中了这块珠江中的小沙洲作为租界地址,填筑成岛,并于1861年签订租约。岛上西部3/4划为广州英租界,约264亩,东部1/4划为广州法租界,约66亩。各有一桥与中国大陆(华界)相通。

目前,沙面是广州著名的旅游区、风景区和休闲胜地,也是白天鹅宾馆所在地。島上绿化较好,有古树150多株,空气清新,环境卫生甚佳,可以称得上是广州的世外桃源。建築方面,多为19世纪末建造,并帶有西方風格,基本上都是文物建筑。
