Description (see definition): Small bay in the W side of Cumberland West Bay, South Georgia, just W of Islet Point. The feature was named "Horseshoe Bay," probably during the survey of Cumberland West Bay by His (Her) Majesty's Ship (HMS) Dartmouth in 1920, but this name has been accepted for a bay close S of Cape George, less than 15 mi away. A new name, proposed by the UK Antarctic Place-names Committee (UK-APC) in 1957, has been substituted for the feature now described; Carlita Bay is for the Carlita (or Lille Carl), a whale catcher built in 1907, owned by the Compania Argentina de Pesca and used for sealing and for general transport work.
