Edro III Shipwreck
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.
The ancient mosaics here are considered among the finest in the world, and serve as a stunning record of Greco-Roman daily life.
