Eastney is an area of Portsmouth, England located on the southeast corner of Portsea Island.

Eastney started out as a small hamlet. In 1863-5 a barracks for the Royal Marines was built in the hamlet. The small hamlet and surrounding farmland were developed and absorbed into Portsmouth in the period 1890-1905, with a network of streets built to house Marines and their families which spread west from the barracks site.
