The Edro III, an 83 meter long, 2,517 ton freighter ran aground in stormy weather in the Sea Caves area of Paphos between Coral Bay and St. George’s Island on 8 December 2011.
The Edro III left Limassol the previous day in bad weather with a cargo of plasterboard bound for Rhodes. The strong winds and rough seas caused the vessel to drift off course when it struck a rock and ran into trouble about ten miles from the shore of Paphos and became disabled.
The Edro III drifted until it finally went ashore near Peyia, hitting the rocks between 4am and 5am. The ship got stuck broadside approximately 15 metres from the shore with the bow wedged in a rocky stretch of the beach.
Oniro By the Sea
ONIRO By The Sea is an original chill-out bar with spectacular sea caves views where you can find delicious bites, original cocktails and refreshing ideas. Located just 50m from the shipwreck, this is just the place for that well deserves sun-downer, after a hard day soaking up the sun.
