The Omulyakhskaya Bay (Russian: Омуляхская губа, Omulyakhskaya Guba) or Omulyakh Bay is a bay in the East Siberian Sea. It is located west of the Sundrun River region and east of the Yana Bay.

The bay is open to the east through a narrow and straight channel and is 115 km in length. Starting from its mouth the bay widens inside, until it reaches a width of 25 km. It has a curved inlet at its end. The Khromskaya Bay is very similar to this bay and lies only 40 km south. Both bays share the same mouth.

This bay is in an area of wetlands; lakes and marshes dot the whole landscape. Owing to is northerly location the Omullyakhskaya Bay is covered with ice most of the year.

The Omulyakh Bay and the area surrounding it belong to the Sakha Republic (Yakutia)administrative division of the Russian Federation.
