@The Edro III Shipwreck

Peyia - Paphos (09-08-2020)

The Edro III, an 83-meter-long cargo ship, is located a few miles away from Peyia and the Sea Caves area. The wreck is right on the shore and, at first glance, looks like an abandoned garden.

For the story, the Sierra Leone-flagged Edro III left from Limassol to Rhodes in bad weather and with a cargo of plasterboard.  Finally, the ship drifted due to the strong winds and rough seas and finally went ashore near Peyia.  The ship remained stranded on the rocks in the sea caves area of Paphos since the 8th of December in 2011. At the time of the accident, the ship had nine crew members – seven Albanians and two Egyptians. The crew were rescued and airlifted by a local British Military helicopter.- inCyprus
