Izgrev Passage (Bulgarian: проток Изгрев, ‘Protok Izgrev’ \'pro-tok 'iz-grev\) is the 2.3 km wide passage separating Rogozen Island, Heywood Island and Pordim Islands from Cornwall Island, Onogur Islands and the northwest coast of Robert Island in the South Shetland Islands. The area was visited by early 19th century sealers.

The passage is named after the settlements of Izgrev in Northern, Northeastern, Southeastern and Southwestern Bulgaria.
