The Atherton Islands are two islands lying 4 kilometres (2 nmi) west-northwest of Bell Point, King George Island in the South Shetland Islands. They were charted by Discovery Investigations in 1934–35 and named after Noel Atherton, cartographer in the Admiralty Hydrographic Office at the time, later chief Civil Hydrographic Officer, 1951–62.
