Labbé Point is a point projecting 600 m (660 yd) into the southwest part of Discovery Bay from Parvomay Neck, Greenwich Island in the South Shetland Islands, Antarctica with an adjacent ice-free area of 11 hectares (27 acres). The point forms the northwest side of the entrance to Basullo Cove and the east side of the entrance to Vinett Cove ( ). The small Basso Island ( ) is linked by a mainly submerged spit to the north side of Labbé Point.
The features were charted and named by the 1947 Chilean Antarctic Expedition after members of the expedition: Lieutenant Custodio Labbé, navigation officer of the transport ship Angamos; Vinett, the boatswain of the expedition; and Juan Basso, chief storekeeper on the frigate Iquique.
The point is located at Ash Point, 1.79 km (1.11 mi) west by north of Ferrer Point, 1.3 km (0.81 mi) east-southeast of Riquelme Point, 3 km (1.9 mi) south-southeast of Ortiz Point and 5.97 km (3.71 mi) south of Spark Point (Chilean mapping in 1951, British in 1968, and Bulgarian in 2005 and 2009).which is 5.08 km (3.16 mi) southwest of
