Hi, again. I'd like to know if there is a concise translation for "barrier island" in Italian or if I have to describe or define it in an email to my family. The Wikipedia entry for barrier island does not have an Italian translation
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Barrier_island
and I don't know if a literal translation would make sense. Isola di barriera?? Probably not.

It's an important part of the ecosystem here in New Jersey - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Long_Beach_Island

Thanks!
