Pleneau Bay

Located in ‘Iceberg Alley,’ which is on Booth Island off the coast of Antarctica, Pleneau Bay isn’t the kind of beach you’ll romp around in your swim trunks. While the local penguins may love to swim these waters, this bay is more for the adventurous spirit rather than the beach bum. In fact, the famous French explorer Charcot spent a winter here studying the area. While visiting, you can pretend to be an explorer yourself — admiring the humpback whales who dip in and out of the bay and the grand natural ice sculptures formed by mother nature herself.
