Hales Peak (64°8′S 62°9′W) is a peak rising from the northeast shoulder of Mount Cabeza in the northeast part of Brabant Island, Palmer Archipelago, Antarctica. It was mapped from air photos taken by Hunting Aerosurveys Ltd, 1956–57, and was named by the UK Antarctic Place-Names Committee for the Englishman Stephen Hales, curate of Teddington, who first estimated blood pressure, and made important advances in hygiene.
