Description (see definition): Small rounded point on the NW side of Zavodovski Island in the South Sandwich Islands. It was named Low Point by DI personnel following their survey in 1930, but that name has been changed because it has also been used for several other features in the vicinity. Pacific Point was recommended in 1953 by the UK Antarctic Place-names Committee (UK-APC) and is named for the American schooner Pacific which, under Captain James Brown, visited Zavodovski Island in 1830, making a landing there.
