Cape Renard, which lies on the south side of the entrance to Flandres Bay, is known for its distinctive rock outcroppings known as Una Peaks. The cape was discovered in 1898 by the Belgian Antarctic Expedition under Adrien de Gerlache and was named for Professor Alphonse Renard, who was renowned for his work on the structure and mineral composition of igneous and sedimentary rocks. Una Peaks, also known as Cape Renard Towers, are two towers of basalt, each topped by a cap of ice.
