Urovene Cove (Bulgarian: залив Уровене, ‘Zaliv Urovene’ \'za-liv u-ro-'ve-ne\) is the 2.65 km wide cove indenting for 2.75 km the southwest coast of Felipe Solo (Obligado) Peninsula, Graham Coast on the Antarctic Peninsula. It is part of Barilari Bay, entered southeast of Laskar Point and northwest of Duyvis Point. The cove was formed as a result of glacier retreat during the last three decades of the 20th century.

The feature is named after the settlement of Urovene in Northwestern Bulgaria.
