Cape Lindsey is a cape at the western end of Elephant Island in the South Shetland archipelago. It marks the northern boundary of Rodman Cove.

The name of the cape first appears on a map from 1822, based on the mapping of the British sealers’ captain George Powell. The further naming background is not handed down.
