The 100 m long in SE-NW direction and 40 m wide moraine reef in Moon Bay, Livingston Island in the South Shetland Islands, with a narrow shoal extending for over 400 m eastwards. Surface area 0.33 ha. Situated 5.4 km SSW of Edinburgh Hill, 5.95 km W of Half Moon Island, 5.18 km NW of Rila Point, 3.3 km NE of Zlatograd Rock and 1.85 km ESE of Sindel Point. Formed at the terminus of merging Struma and Huron Glaciers, it was originally named Elemag Point. The current reef configuration is due to glacier retreat of up to 1.8 km in the area in the late 20th and early 21st century. Bulgarian mapping in 2009.
Named after Elemag, governor of the southwestern region of Bulgaria with provincial capital town Belgrad (Berat) under Czar Samuel, Czar Gavril Radomir and Czar Ivan Vladislav (10-11th Century AD).
