Beaches extending along the N side of Byers Peninsula, Livingston Island, in the South Shetland Islands. The name Robbery Beach was used by James Weddell in 1820-23. It arose from the English robbery of sealskins collected by the American brig Charity (Capt. Charles H. Barnard) of New York in January 1821. There was fierce competition between British and American sealers in the area during the early 1820s.
