Iceberg Bay is a bay 3 miles (5 km) wide, which indents the south coast of Coronation Island between Cape Hansen and Olivine Point, in the South Orkney Islands, Antarctica. It was named by Matthew Brisbane, who roughly charted the south coast of Coronation Island under the direction of James Weddell in 1823.[1] Beaufoy Ridge and Sunshine Glacier lie close north of Iceberg Bay.
