Archipelago

A group of islands is collectively called Archipelago. An island is a piece of land that is surrounded on all sides by water. Most archipelagoes are made of oceanic islands. So the islands were formed by volcanoes erupting from the ocean. The islands are considered part of a larger land mass. Places such as Hawaii and the Virgin Islands are considered to be archipelagos.
