Kekova is part of the Tentative list of Turkey in order to qualify for inclusion in the World Heritage List.

Kekova is a region that encompasses a small Mediterranean island known for its coastline and Lycian settlements. On the northern side of the small, uninhabited island lie the partly sunken ruins of Dolchiste, an ancient town which was destroyed by an earthquake during the 2nd century. The ruins of the ancient towns of Simena, Aperlae and Teimioussa can be found on the coastal mainland.
