South Bay (62°40′S 60°28′W / 62.667°S 60.467°W / -62.667; -60.467Coordinates: 62°40′S 60°28′W / 62.667°S 60.467°W / -62.667; -60.467) is a 11.6 kilometres (7.2 mi) wide bay indenting for 12.5 kilometres (7.8 mi) the south coast of Livingston Island in the South Shetland Islands, Antarctica. The bay is lying northwest of False Bay and east of Walker Bay, and is entered between Hannah Point and Miers Bluff. The glaciers Kamchiya, Pimpirev, Perunika, Contell, Johnsons and Hurd Ice Cap feed the bay.

South Bay was known to both American and British sealers as early as 1820, and the name has been well established in international usage for over 100 years.
