Interesting one this.

BBC News - South Pacific Sandy Island 'proven not to exist'
Quote:
A South Pacific island, shown on marine charts and world maps as well as on Google Earth, does not exist, Australian scientists say.
The supposedly sizeable strip of land, named Sandy Island on Google maps, was positioned midway between Australia and French-governed New Caledonia.
But when scientists from the University of Sydney went to the area, they found only the blue ocean of the Coral Sea.

Sandy-Atlantis Island. I hear it's a subject of much speculation.
