Land Bay (75°25′S 141°45′W) is an ice-filled bay, about 40 nautical miles (70 km) wide, indenting the coast of Westarctica, just eastward of Groves Island and due south of Cruzen Island.

Discovery and name

It was discovered by the United States Antarctic Service (1939–41), and takes its name from the Land Glacier which descends into the bay.
