Edro III Shipwreck

Local name: Εδρο ΙΙΙ ναυάγιο

The Edro III shipwreck is located on a rocky coast about 200 meters from the famous water caves in the Paphos region. The wreck rests on the rocks and is not open to the public, but can be viewed from the coast. Due to the picturesque surroundings, it is also often used as a backdrop for wedding photo sessions.

The Edro III ship was built in 1966 in Norway. In 2011, when the accident occurred, it was owned by an Albanian company and sailed the Sierra Leone flag with a crew of nine. On October 7, 2011, during a trip to Rhodes as a result of a sudden weather breakdown, he got stuck on the rocky coast near Paphos.

The wreck is about 90 meters long and 14.5 meters wide and weighs 2345 tons. The load of gypsum boards he transported, as well as fuel reserves were removed after the accident, so that the wreck is not an ecological threat at the moment.
