Inepta Cove (62°42′S 60°18′W / 62.700°S 60.300°W / -62.700; -60.300Coordinates: 62°42′S 60°18′W / 62.700°S 60.300°W / -62.700; -60.300) is a cove on the northwest side of Rozhen Peninsula, part of False Bay, Livingston Island in the South Shetland Islands, Antarctica. The feature's configuration has changed markedly, and it has eventually disappeared as a result of the retreat of Huntress Glacier during the last decade of the 20th century and the first decade of the 21st century.[1][2]

The feature was named "Caleta Inepta" (unapt cove) on a 1954 Argentine navy chart, which reflects the inadequacy of the cove as an anchorage. This name has been approved with an English generic term.
