Klek is the name of a small peninsula in the Adriatic Sea located southwest of Neum, Bosnia Herzegovina.

The peak of the peninsula, that lies directly across the eponymous village of Klek in Croatia, is disputed between Bosnia and Herzegovina and Croatia, who last negotiated its status in the 1999 Neum Agreement.[3][4]
