Iquique Cove is a small, 400 m (440 yd) wide cove indenting for 700 m (770 yd) the east coast of Discovery Bay, Greenwich Island in the South Shetland Islands, Antarctica. Iquique Cove is sheltered on the northwest by Guesalaga Peninsula, and the small González Island ( ) is situated on the south side of the cove's entrance. The cove is used by ships servicing the Chilean Antarctic base Arturo Prat.
Iquique Cove was charted and named by the 1947 Chilean Antarctic Expedition after the naval frigate Iquique, with González Island named after Ernesto González, captain of the Iquique on that expedition.
