Barlow Island is a small ice-free island off the north coast of Smith Island in the South Shetland Islands, Antarctica extending 380 by 160 m (420 by 170 yd), surface area 5.28 hectares (13 acres).
The feature's name, presumably honouring the British physicist and mathematician Peter Barlow (1776–1862), derives from the name 'Cape Barlow' originally applied in 1829 by the British naval expedition under Captain Henry Foster to some point on the east side of Smith Island.
The island is located at Cape Smith, 2.42 km (1.50 mi) north-northeast of Matochina Peak, 2.48 km (1.54 mi) northeast of Delyan Point and 11.33 km (7.04 mi) northeast of Gregory Point (British mapping in 1957, Chilean in 1962, Argentine in 1991, and Bulgarian in 2009).which is 2.14 km (1.33 mi) west-northwest of
