Edro III Shipwreck

Are you ready for an adventure in Peyia, Paphos? Let me take you on a journey of the Edro III Shipwreck, our coastal town’s pride and joy near the sea caves!

On September 8, 2011, in heavy seas, the Sierra Leone-flagged ship ran aground off Pegeia, but no worries. 

The crew was successfully airlifted to safety by a local British Military helicopter.

But wait, that’s not all! 

You’ll be mesmerized by the stunning views as you explore the shoreline where the Edro III Shipwreck still rests, a symbolic addition to our beautiful sea.

This spectacular site is perfect for a picnic, relaxing, and taking fantastic photos. 

Be mindful of scheduling your trip in the morning or during sunset to avoid taking pictures against the sun, but don’t worry, even sunny shots turn out great! 

You will love spending your day in this area with several cafes nearby.

Don’t miss out on this visual masterpiece – It’s a must-visit for anyone in the area!

Edro III Shipwreck

On October 8th, 2011, the EDRO III, a Sierra Leone-flagged ship carrying a cargo of plasterboard from Limassol, Cyprus, to Rhodes, ran aground off the coast of Pegeia in heavy seas.

MS Zenobia is the most famous shipwreck in Cyprus. This stunning Swedish-built Challenger-class RO-RO ferry sank during her maiden voyage in the Mediterranean Sea, near the beautiful city of Larnaca, Cyprus, in June 1980. What a story!
