Hespérides Point

Hespérides Point (Spanish: Punta Hespérides) is a rocky point of land projecting into South Bay north-northwest of Johnsons Dock, Livingston Island in the South Shetland Islands, Antarctica and forming the southwest side of the entrance to Emona Anchorage. Surmounted by Hesperides Hill. The area was visited by 19th century sealers operating from nearby Johnsons Dock.


The feature is named after the Spanish ocean exploration ship BIO Hespérides.


The point is located at 62°38′36.7″S 60°22′23″W which is 12.36 km east-northeast of Hannah Point, 3.7 km southeast of Smolyan Point and 1.59 km north of Ballester Point (British mapping in 1968, detailed Spanish mapping in 1991 and Bulgarian mapping in 1996, 2005 and 2009).
