Description (see definition): A bay which is completely enclosed except for a very narrow entrance on the north side, lying within the northern part of Langnes Peninsula, Vestfold Hills. The feature was photographed by the Lars Christensen Expedition (1936-37), but was plotted on the subsequent maps as a lake. John Roscoe's 1952 study of air photographs taken by Operation Highjump (1946-47) showed that the bay is connected at the north to the sea. It was photographed by Australian National Antarctic Research Expeditions (ANARE) (1954-58) and the Soviet Antarctic Expedition (1956), the latter applying the name Bukhta Taynaya (secret bay).
