Location of Deception Island in the South Shetland Islands.

Macaroni Point (62°54′S 60°32′W / 62.900°S 60.533°W / -62.900; -60.533Coordinates: 62°54′S 60°32′W / 62.900°S 60.533°W / -62.900; -60.533) is a point marking the northeastern extremity of Deception Island, in the South Shetland Islands, Antarctica. The name arose following survey by the Falkland Islands Dependencies Survey in January 1954, because a colony of macaroni penguins (Eudyptes chrysolophus) is on this point.[1]
