Kekova Island (Turkey)

  • The island is uninhabited, with land area 4,5 km2 (2 ml2).
  • Following the Italian occupation of Kastellorizo Island (Greece), Kekova (was disputed between Turkey and Italy. The 1932 Convention assigned it to Turkey.
  • On the island's northern side there are partly sunken ruins of Dolikisthe (Dolchiste) - an ancient town that was destroyed by earthquake in the 2nd century. Rebuilt and flourishing during the Byzantine Empire (330-1453), the town was finally abandoned due to Arab incursions.
  • In January 1990, Kekova was declared a protected area.
