Description (see definition): Small bay lying 1 mi N of Camp Bay in the W side of the Bay of Isles, South Georgia. The names Rosita Harbor and Allardyce Harbor were given for this bay in the period 1905-12, and both have since appeared on maps for this feature. Following a survey of South Georgia in 1951-52, the South Georgia Survey (SGS) reported that the feature is known locally as Rosita Harbor, and this name is approved on that basis. The name Allardyce is rejected as applied to this feature; the main mountain range at South Georgia is already named for William L. Allardyce. Rosita Harbor is named after the Co., which started operating with the company in 1905, and which anchored in this bay.
