The E entrance point to Potter Cove, King George Island, in the South Shetland Islands. The feature was called "Punta Baliza" (beacon point) by R. Araya and F. Herve, 1966; later called "Punta Elefante" by the Argentine Antarctic Expedition after the elephant seal (Mirounga leonina), in connection with the establishment of SSSI No. 13 (Site of Special Scientific Interest) in this vicinity under the Antarctic Treaty. The approved name avoids the duplication of Elephant Point on Livingston Island.
