Medina was a non-metropolitan district with the status of a borough on the Isle of Wightmarker in Englandmarker from 1974 to 1995.

The district was formed by the Local Government Act 1972, and was a merger of the municipal boroughs of Newportmarker and Rydemarker along with the urban district of Cowesmarker. It was one of two districts on the island formed in 1974 - the other was South Wightmarker.

"Medina" was an older name for Newport which has been preserved in the River Medina.

Following a review by the Local Government Commission for England, the borough was abolished on 1 April 1995, when a single Isle of Wight Council replaced the island's county council and two district councils.
