Narrative

A series of beaches which extend for 6 mi along the broad western end of Byers Peninsula, Livingston Island, in the South Shetland Islands. The name "West Beaches" was proposed by K.R. Everett, USARP researcher who made a reconnaissance soil survey in the area during February 1969. The proposed name is locationally appropriate but would be repetitious. The US-ACAN has chosen instead to restore a historical name to the vicinity. In the early part of the 1820-21 season, the Stonington sealers used the name "President's Harbor" (now New Plymouth) for the anchorage immediately off these beaches.
