Description (see definition): A bay between Rink Point and Stoneley Point on the NW side of James Ross Island. The bay was almost surely discovered by Otto Nordenskjold of the Swedish Antarctic Expedition (SwedAE) in 1903, who roughly mapped this area and showed small bays in this position. It was surveyed by Falklands Islands Dependencies Survey (FIDS) in 1945 and 1952, and later called "Caleta Santa Eduvigis" on an unpublished Argentine Antarctic Expedition map, c. 1959. Named by the UK Antarctic Place-names Committee (UK-APC) in 1983 in association with nearby Brandy Bay.
