John Beach, Livingston Island

John Beach (coord|62|39|S|60|46|W|) is a beach at the west side of the entrance to Walker Bay on the south coast of Livingston Island, in the South Shetland Islands. First roughly charted and named ‘Black Point’ by Robert Fildes in 1820-22. As there is already a Black Point on Livingston Island, this name was rejected and a new one substituted by the UK-APC in 1958. John Beach is named after the brig "John" (Capt. John Walker) of London, which was sealing in the South Shetland Islands in 1820-21 and 1821-22.
