Half Moon Island, Antarctica

January 2005

Back to main Antarctica gallery

Half Moon Island is another of the small South Shetland Island with easy beach access for penguin rookeries, in this case for the largest colony of chinstraps in the area. Half Moon is so called due to its crescent like shape and was a favourite mooring site for old whaling boats of the 19th century.
