Busen Point or Busen Peninsula (54°9′S 36°33′W / 54.150°S 36.550°W / -54.150; -36.550Coordinates: 54°9′S 36°33′W / 54.150°S 36.550°W / -54.150; -36.550) is a headland forming the southeast side of the entrance to Stromness Bay, on the north coast of South Georgia. It is between Cumberland West Bay and Stromness Bay.[1]

The point was known at a much earlier date, but the name was first used on the charts based upon the 1927–29 survey by Discovery Investigations personnel. It was named for the head of Husvik Harbour in Stromness Bay.
