Location of Graham Coast on the Antarctic Peninsula.

Plas Point (Bulgarian: нос Плас, ‘Nos Plas’ \'nos 'plas\) is the point on the south side of the entrance to Nevsha Cove, Graham Coast on the Antarctic Peninsula. Its shape was enhanced as a result of the adjacent Funk Glacier and Cadman Glacier retreating during the last decade of 20th century and the first decade of 21st century.

The feature is named after Plas Peak in Pirin Mountain, Bulgaria.
