Edro III Shipwreck

Peyia, Cyprus

While most shipwrecks are submerged, this ship in Cyprus ran ashore.  


The Sierra Leone flagged EDRO III left the port of Limassol in early December 2011, bound for Rhodes with nine crew members and a cargo of plasterboard.

The vessel ran aground in Paphos in stormy seas in 2011. The entire crew aboard were rescued by the British military based in Cyprus.  

Still stranded on the rocks, the shipwreck is extremely close to the shore making it an easy visit. The ship weighs over 2,000 tons and is over 200 feet (80 meters) long. It sprawls on the rocks at a 12-degree angle.

The vessel is an empty shell today, with all marine contaminants and pollutants removed in late 2013.
