Anden or Anda is a small island in the municipality of Øksnes in Nordland county, Norway. It lies in the Vesterålen archipelago, about 5 kilometres (3.1 mi) north of the village of Stø on the northern tip of the large island of Langøya, and about 14 kilometres (8.7 mi) west of the large island of Andøya. It is home to the Anda Lighthouse, which was the last lighthouse in Norway to be automated (in 1987).

The 15.3-hectare (38-acre) island is protected as a nature reserve, and is an important nesting area for Atlantic puffin. Black-legged kittiwakes, razorbills, common shags, herring gulls, and black guillemots also nest there. There is a large seal colony on the island.
