Pelham Bay is a small bay, between City Islandmarker and Orchard Beachmarker in the Bronxmarker, New Yorkmarker.

Technically, it is a sound, not a bay, since it is open to larger bodies of water at both ends. It connects to Eastchester Baymarker at the south, and opens onto Long Island Soundmarker and City Island Harbor at the east.

Pelham Bay was originally larger than it is today. Approximately one third of the original bay was filled in to create Orchard Beachmarker in the 1930s.
