Lively Island ( ) is one of the Falkland Islandsmarker, lying east of East Falklandmarker. It is the largest rat-free island in the Falklands, hence important to birdlife and is home to a sheep farm.

The Spanish name, "Isla Bougainville" (like Port Louis) is named after the Frenchmarker navigator Louis de Bougainville who established the first settlement in the archipelago in the 1760s.

In the late 19th and early 20th Century the island was own by George Cobb. It was sold after World War One to pay taxes.

The Battle of Seal Covemarker took place near here in the Falklands War.

Alexander Jaffray is the current owner.
