    The ford across the river Dziwna on which Wolin is located has been used as far back as the Stone Age. Archaeological excavations of soil layers indicate that there was a settlement in the area during the Migration period, at the turn of the 5th and 6th centuries. The place was then abandoned for approximately hundred years. At the end of the 8th or the beginning of the 9th century the area was leveled and a new settlement constructed. The earliest evidence of fortifications dates to the first half of the 9th century. In the second half of the 9th century there was a central fortified area and two suburbs, to the north and south of the center. These became enclosed and fortified between the end of the 9th and the 10th centuries. In the 8th century there was a West Slavic settlement on the island.

    Původ jména není zcela znám, pravděpodobně se jedná o slovanský původ, kdy v jazyku starých Slovanů znamenalo slovo "wolyn" vlhkou, mokrouzemi. V minulosti se zde nacházel chrám Polabských Slovanů. Ostrov získal roku 967 polský kníže Měšek I., o několik století později se však stal součástí německojazyčných státních útvarů a slovanské obyvatelstvo zde nahradili převážně Němci. Od roku 1720 náležel Prusku, poté sjednocené Německé říši. Po 2. světové válce byl přiřknut Polsku a po správní reformě z roku 1999 je součástí Západopomořského vojvodství. Německé obyvatelstvo bylo vysídleno hned po 2. světové válce a ostrov osídlilo polské obyvatelstvo.

    Většina ostrova, který má přibližně trojúhelníkovitý tvar, je tvořena lesy a menšími kopci. Uprostřed ostrova se nachází Volyňský národní park s několika jezery, z nichž největší se jmenuje Koprowo. Ostrov je jedním z největších turistických lákadel na severu Polska a nachází se zde několik značených turistických cest, např. 73 km dlouhá trasa z Międzyzdroje do Dziwnówku. Na Wolině leží města Svinoústí (východní část s velkým přístavem), Wolin, Międzyzdroje; většina ostrova je rozdělena mezi gminy Wolin a Międzyzdroje, které spadají pod Okres Kamień Pomorski. Napříč ostrovem probíhá důležitá železniční trať Štětín - Svinoústí.
