Narrative

Roughly square embayment forming the head of South Bay, Livingston Island. Deep over 100m at its central portion NW by N of Spanish Point. Entered between Hespérides Point and a nameless cape lying 3.18km NW by N of it and 3.04km NE by E of Ereby Point. The NW coast is mostly a narrow beach under ice-cap cliff, the NE coast but for Aleko Rock is formed by a glacier snout, while Bulgarian Beach accounts for most of the SE coast. Provides anchorage for vessels serving St. Kliment Ohridski. Charted by 19th century sealers. Spanish mapping in 1991, Bulgarian remapping of modified coastal configuration in 1996. Named after the Black Sea settlement of Emona, Bulgaria.
