Location of Trinity Peninsula.

Eyrie Bay is a bay, 2.5 miles (4 km) wide at its mouth and extending 3 miles (5 km) inland, lying north of Jade Point on Yatrus Promontory, Trinity Peninsula in Antarctica. It was so named by the UK Antarctic Place-Names Committee after an eagle's eyrie because of the proximity to Eagle Island.[1]
