Angel Island - Debut: Sonic The Hedgehog 3 (Sonic Sega Place)
Angel Island is truely a place of living legend in the Sonic universe. Angel Island, like many magical islands in myth, floats in the sky, as a result of the energy released by the mighty stone known as the Master Emerald. It is said that long ago, Angel Island was once part of a main continent, and inhabited by a powerful race of ancient people who used the Master Emerald to help build their great civilization. But of course, a power such as this is bound to get to get to someone's head, and it did. A group of elders attempted to steal the "Mighty Stone"'s energy, but ultimately wound up getting their entire race killed when the stone (or perhaps, something guarding it) exploded.
Then, according to legend, a god of the skies came from the heavens, brought back to life part of this civilization, and placed the Master Emerald, along with the land around it, into the sky, forming what we now know as Angel Island. And by no means was this a small amount of land. With over 12 zones, Angel Island is HUGE. It houses all of the traditional animals (minus Picky), as well as a wide variety of interesting areas to explore, none of which are known better than Knuckles the Echidna, the last known remnant of the ancient race, and self-proclaimed guardian of the island, and the Master Emerald.
Though the Master Emerald keeps the island afloat, it has been forced into the ocean before when it served as the crash site for Eggman's Death Egg. The Master Emerald also cannot seem to keep the island up when it is in contact with the 7 Chaos Emeralds...

Ark - Debut: Sonic Adventure 2 (Sonic Sega Place)
The worlds first Benoulli spherical space-colony Ark was built many years ago, housing some of the worlds finest minds who travelled into space to the most advanced research centre of its kind. One of these was Professor Gerald and his granddaughter, Maria. He made contact with the Black Comet and with Black Dooms help created the Ultimate Life Form; Shadow. However, not trusting Black Doom he also began construction of a powerful weapon; the Eclipse Cannon.
Unfortunately due to the Professors work G.U.N. stormed the space colony, killing whoever they couldn’t capture. Maria was among the lists of the dead, a fact that drove Professor Gerald mad, programming the Space Colony to crash into earth. He left the Biolizard, the prototype ultimate life form to make sure this happened and programmed Shadow to take the Chaos Emeralds there.
Shadow realised that his mind had been tampered with and with Sonic stopped it from crashing into the planet. The ARK was saved and when the Black Arms invaded Shadow returned to it to take control of the Eclipse Cannon. With it he opened fire on the Black Comet and destroyed them forever.

Black Comet - Debut: Shadow the Hedgehog (Sonic Sega Place)
The Black Comet apparently used to pass the planet once every fifty years, becoming the centrepiece for a great festival as stargazers marvelled up at it. However they had no idea the comet was home to the Black Arms, an army hell bent on their destruction. The last time to comet passed Professor Gerald made contact with it and worked a deal with Black Doom, accepting their help to create the Ultimate Life Form in return for the Chaos Emeralds.
When the comet returned fifty years later the invasion began, thousands of Black Arms descended on the planet to hunt out the Chaos Emeralds. However Professor Gerald had realised what Black Doom was planning and built the Eclipse Cannon to destroy the comet.

South Island - Debut: Sonic The Hedgehog (16-bit version) (Sonic Sega Place)
If there is any well known name amongst the locations of Sonic, South Island would most certainly be it. It houses the classic Sonic atmosphere with sparkling waters and checkered hill sides. Though it has never been confirmed whether or not this is Sonic's true home (though in all honesty, does Sonic really have a "home"?), it is home to an assorment of different little animals including Flicky, Ricky, Pocky, Picky, Cucky, Pecky and Rocky. It is home to probably more zones than any other location, and is also home to the biggest, and probably most over explored zone, the Green Hill Zone.
Perhaps the strangest quirk about South Island is how it is constantly moving from area to area in the ocean, and thus can never appear on any map of the world. It was because of this movement that the mystical Chaos Emeralds drifted endlessly through a torison along this border of time and space. That is until Dr. Eggman discovered their secret, and attempted to obtain them by building his base, the Scrap Brain Zone, in the center of the island.
One last note would be that in Sonic & Tails, it was said that the island required the Chaos Emeralds to support its vitality, otherwise it would sink into the ocean. It's hard to say whether this is true, but because the Chaos Emeralds have long since been seperated from South Island, it can probably be disregraded.

Westside Island - Debut: Sonic the Hedgehog 2 (16-bit version) (Sonic Sega Place)
Though a small and, for the most part, normal island, Westside Island, also known as the Island of Illusions, holds many secrets. Including the remains of a long lost civilization.
It is said that long ago, these people used the power of 7 magical stones to build a powerful (and clearly Roman-esque) society. But of course, this power followed only in greed, and those stupid people started fighting over control of the stones. Of course, the gods (or what is said to be the gods) weren't too pleased with this, so they took these stones away from the people, and hid them where they would never be found.
Westside Island is relatively small with about 8 zones, but houses some unique animals (Locky, Wocky, Becky, Tocky, and an unidentified rat) as well as the native animals found on South Island (minus Picky. Man, I miss that little guy...). Westside Island was also the home to everyone's favorite trademark sidekick, Tails!
Even with all the mystery and adventure still hiding in the island, Sonic and co. have never seemed to have decided to make a trip back there, and sadly, probably never will.
