Walker Bay is a bay lying between John Beach and Hannah Point along the south coast of Livingston Island in the South Shetland Islands, Antarctica. The bay is fed by Verila Glacier.

It was named by the United Kingdom Antarctic Place-Names Committee (UK-APC) in 1958 for John Walker, Master of the sealer John who visited the South Shetland Islands in 1820-21 and provided George Powell with descriptions and sketches of their southern coasts for incorporation in his 1822 chart.
