Vergilov Rocks (Vergilov Kamak ver-'gi-lov 'ka-m&k) are a group of rocks off Bulgarian Beach on Hurd Peninsula in eastern Livingston Island in the South Shetland Islands, Antarctica, consisting of one main rock and two adjacent smaller ones submerging at high water.

The rocks are named after Zlatil Vergilov, a member of the 1988 Bulgarian party on Livingston Island, base commander at St. Kliment Ohridski in the 1996-99 seasons.


The rocks are located at 62°38′24″S 60°22′12″W / 62.64000°S 60.37000°W / -62.64000; -60.37000 which is 510 m (560 yd) northeast of Hespérides Point, 310 m (340 yd) west by south of Greenpeace Rock, and 100 m (110 yd) from the coast in front of the Bulgarian base (British mapping in 1968, Bulgarian mapping from a 1995-1996 topographic survey).
