The Hall Peninsula[1] is a peninsula on the southern end of Baffin Island, in Nunavut, Canada. It lies between Frobisher Bay on the west, and the Cumberland Sound on the east between 62°40'N and 65°10'W. The Hall Peninsula is part of the Arctic Tundra biome—the world's coldest and driest biome. The Blunt Peninsula extends off the southeastern part of the Hall Peninsula.[2]

The Hall Peninsula includes the Chidliak Kimberlite Province, which had been found to include diamond-bearing kimberlite pipes.[3]
