Roland Bay (65°4′S 64°3′W) is a cove, the south shore of which is Herveou Point, indenting the west end of the peninsula that forms the west extremity of Booth Island, in the Wilhelm Archipelago, off the west coast of the Antarctic Peninsula. Jean-Baptiste Charcot (1867-1936), an explorer and oceanographer, charted the area on one of the French Antarctic Expeditions. The bay was named F. Roland, a seaman on the ship Francais.
