South Bay is a waterway in Kivalliq Region, Nunavut, Canada. It is located in Hudson Bay, off southwestern Southampton Island. It is west of Native Bay. The Kirchoffer River empties into the bay.[1]

Coral Harbour[edit]

The small Inuit community of Coral Harbour is located on the bay's northern shore, 25.9 km (16.1 mi) from the mouth of the bay.[2] The bay is notable for its fossilized coral which lends its name to the community.
