About

A new wreck, sunk in December 2019, adds to the list of great wreck dives here in Cyprus.

The “Elpida”, which translates to “HOPE” is about a 30 minutes boat ride from the Larnaca Marina. The Elpida is a cargo vessel and is the biggest purposely suck wreck in Cyprus. The 63 metre long vessel rests upright at a maximum depth of 28 metres.

Being prepared perfectly with diving in mind, the cargo bays and all decks are fully accessible to divers.
