Sandanski Point

Sandanski Point (Nos Sandanski \'nos san-'dan-ski) is the point forming the north side of the entrance to Stoyanov Cove on the east coast of Ioannes Paulus II Peninsula, Livingston Island in the South Shetland Islands, Antarctica, projecting 600 m into Hero Bay and formed by an offshoot of Oryahovo Heights.


The point is named after the town of Sandanski in southwestern Bulgaria in connection with Yane Sandanski (1872–1915), a leader of the Bulgarian liberation movement in Macedonia.


The point is located at 62°30′41.5″S 60°41′49″W which is 3.4 km north by west of Agüero Point, and 2.8 km south by east of Black Point.
