Ending in Foyn Point to the SE. The E coast of the peninsula is indented by Yamforina Cove, and its interior is partly occupied by the SE portion of Poibrene Heights. Formed as a result of the break-up of Larsen Ice Shelf in the area in 2002, and subsequent retreat of the adjacent Evans Glacier and Punchbowl Glacier. Antarctic Digital Database mapping 2012. Named after the city of Blagoevgrad in Southwestern Bulgaria.
