Coats Land is a region in Antarctica which lies westward of Queen Maud Land and forms the eastern shore of the Weddell Sea.

The Brunt Ice Shelf, visible here, borders the Antarctic coast of Coats Land, Antarctica, between the Dawson-Lambton Glacier and the Stancomb-Wills Glacier Tongue.

The Brunt Icefalls extend along Caird Coast, a portion of the shore of Coats Land, for about 80 km (50 mi), where the steep and jagged ice-covered coast descends to Brunt Ice Shelf.
