The surface and perimeter of Latady Island appear very smooth, in contrast to the more jagged, cracked ice off its shores.

Latady Island is a low, ice-covered island, about 60 km (35 miles) long and nearly 40 km (more than 10 miles) wide, lying 72 km (45 miles) south of Charcot Island and west of Alexander Island.

Alexander Island lies off the coast of Antarctica and is linked to it by an ice shelf. It is in the Bellingshausen Sea, west of the base of the Antarctic Peninsula, from which it is separated by Marguerite Bay and George VI Sound.
