The Sally Rocks are a small group of cliff rocks in the archipelago of the South Shetland Islands . In the South Bay of Livingston Island they are just north of Miers Bluff .

The British navigator James Weddell named a supposed bay south of Johnson's Dock as Sallys Cove between 1820 and 1823 . Such a bay could not be identified on aerial photographs taken by the Falkland Islands and Dependencies Aerial Survey Expedition between 1956 and 1957. The UK Antarctic Place-Names Committee transferred Weddell's name to the rocks described here in 1961 for reasons of historical continuity. The further naming background has not been passed down.
