Only one receptacle is required for an Island counter with a long dimension of 24" or greater in length and a short dimension of 12" or greater. Since there this a sink in the middle of your island it will probably be considered 2 counter spaces so 1 receptacle on each end would be sufficient.

Only one is needed on that island. Install one one the side and you are fine. I (succesfully?) argue that only one is needed because that is one "island counter space". Even with the sink the two ends are not really separated the way the counter extends accross behind the sink. Most inspectors around here would agree and common sense would prevail.
