Description (see definition): A narrow shingle spit projecting westward into Discovery Bay from Guesalaga Peninsula, Greenwich Island, South Shetland Islands. The name derives from "Punta Reyes" which appears for a point at the base of the spit, but not for the spit itself, on a Chilean hydrographic chart of 1951. The recommended name, Reyes Spit, recognizes the practical continuity of the point with this shingle spit. Named by the 1947 Chilean Antarctic Expedition for Second Navigation Sergeant Camilo Reyes Ulloa, who had charge of the gyrocompass and other navigation instruments aboard the frigate Iquique.
