Kekova, also named Caravola, is a small Turkish island near Demre district of Antalya province which faces the villages of Kaleköy (ancient Simena) and Üçağız. Kekova has an area of 4.5 km² and is uninhabited. After the Italian occupation of Kastelorizo, Kekova — which at that time was temporarily inhabited during summer because of wood harvest — was disputed between Italy and Turkey. The 1932 Convention between Italy and Turkey assigned it to Turkey.
