Carlota Cove

Carlota Cove is the 1.9 km wide cove indenting for 1.14 km the northwest coast of Alfatar Peninsula, Robert Island in the South Shetland Islands, Antarctica next east of Coppermine Peninsula, and entered between Fort William and Misnomer Point. The area was visited by early 19th century sealers operating from neighbouring Clothier Harbour.
