The island seen from West

Kara Ada, (literally "Black island" in Turkish), is a small Turkish island in the Bay of Bodrum in the Aegean Sea. It is a popular tourist destination, particularly for yachting.


In the Middle Ages the island, which the Greeks know under the name of Arcos, was taken over by the Knights of St. John Hospitaller, who occupied also Bodrum. It was conquered by the Ottoman Empire in the XVI Century. In 1919 it was occupied by the Italians. The 1932 Convention between Italy and Turkey assigned it to Turkey.
