Names that other countries have for this feature:
A small bay, immediately south of Flagstaff Point, on the west side of Ross Island. In 1908 the BAE, 1907-09, used this bay for unloading stores at their base at Cape Royds. They named it because the bay lies at the back (east) side of Cape Royds, and opposite the small cove on the west side of the point, known to members of the expedition as Front Door Bay.
