Narrative

Emona Anchorage coast extending 2.3km northeastward from Hespérides Point, Livingston Island. Comprises four predominantly boulder beaches surmounted by a chain of five hills. Ending as a narrow strip under the terminus of Perunika Glacier. In summer mostly snow-free and crossed by four meltwater streams draining the NW slope of Balkan Snowfield. Possibly visited by early 19th century sealers frequenting the nearby Johnsons Dock. Name established in use at the time of approval.
