The Blosseville Coast (Danish: Blosseville Kyst) is a stretch of coast in southeastern Greenland between the fjord Kangerdlugsuaqq 68°N 32°W and Cape Brewster at the entrance to Scoresby Sound at 70° 10'N 22°W.

The coast is steep and difficult to access with ship due to the great ice barrier.

It was explored in 1833 by Jules de Blosseville, commander of "La Lilloise", for whom it is named.
