Knuckle Reef (67°50′S 67°22′W / 67.833°S 67.367°W / -67.833; -67.367Coordinates: 67°50′S 67°22′W / 67.833°S 67.367°W / -67.833; -67.367) is a reef lying off Beacon Head, Horseshoe Island, Antarctica. The reef was so named by the UK Antarctic Place-Names Committee in 1958 because the individual rocks in the reef, which are exposed at low tide, resemble the knuckles of a clenched fist.[1]
