64°44′S 62°37′W  has 5 km long on a sloping cobblestone beach off the west coast of Graham Land.
 



It was charted by the Belgian Antarctic Expedition under de Gerlache, in 1897–99 and later named for the expedition’s geophysicist, Émile Danco.

Station O, built by the British in 1955–56 and occupied as a surveying base until 1959, was demolished and removed in 2004 after four decades as a refuge hut.



It is now administered under the Antarctic Treaty System.
