Lukovit Point (Bulgarian: нос Луковит, ‘Nos Lukovit’ \'nos 'lu-ko-vit) is an ice-free point on the coast of Hero Bay, Livingston Island in the South Shetland Islands, Antarctica forming the west side of the entrance to Maleshevo Cove. Situated 2.74 km west-southwest of Siddins Point and 5.6 km east of Kuklen Point. Shape enhanced as a result of the retreat of Tundzha Glacier in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. Spanish mapping in 1991, Bulgarian in 2005 and 2009. Named after the town of Lukovit in northern Bulgaria.
