Waiheke Island, New Zealand
Residents of Waiheke Island, all 8,000 of them, are doubly insular. They are isolated on a small island in the Hauraki Gulf, with access to the mainland only by ferry. When they get to the mainland, they find themselves on another island, New Zealand's North Island. A thousand miles away is Australia, the island continent. Maybe that's triple insularity.
