Pauloff Harbor is an unincorporated area in the Aleutians East Borough, located on the northern coast of Sanak Island, 50 miles southeast of False Pass. The community name differs from the harbor on which it is located – Pavlov Harbor. A post office was established in 1949. The island is now unoccupied. Most of the shareholders now live in Sand Point. Float planes or personal boats from False Pass or King Cove are the primary means of transportation.
