Small bay lying at the E side of Cape Royds, along the W side of Ross Island. The BrAE, 1907-09, under Shackleton, unloaded supplies at Backdoor Bay for use at their winter headquarters on Cape Royds. So named by them because it lies at the back (east) side of Cape Royds, opposite the small cove on the W side of the cape, known to them as "Front Door Bay."
