Somewhere around the ‘80s, a ship loaded with wood, was traveling a routine trip from Yugoslavia towards Jeddah of Saudi Arabia near the Red Sea. Due to a severe storm the ship ran aground on Akrotiri peninsula in flames and partly sank. None of the crew died. Mav Achaios ship was built in 1932 and it was owned by Akarnania Maritime Co. 

Today, the partially submerged ship stands still at the point where it ran ashore back then thus offering a very chilling and magical view of the sea of Limassol.  It’s known as the “Three Stars Ship Wreck”. 

The wreck of a maximum depth of 7 meters is suitable for diving. The remote area around it is also ideal for aerial sports.
