The Paradise Bay is a natural harbour in the west of the Antarctic Peninsula and used by cruise ships. The Bay is surrounded by the Ghide and Lemaire Island in the west and the Mt. Hoegh (890 m), Dallmeyer Peak (1'105 m), Mt. Inverleith (1'495 m), Median Ridge (1'617 m) and the Triangle Peak (1'112 m) on the Antarctic mainland.

The Paradise Bay is the location of two research stations, the Argentine scientific base Almirante Brown Antarctic Base and the Chilean scientific base Gabriel González (at the Waterboat Point).
