Wreck of Vera K
The Vera-K was a Lebanese freighter that ran aground in 1972 and was later blown up in 1974 due to it being a hazard to passing vessels. The wreck in in four sections with much of the bridge and engine still intact.
This amazing dive site is situated just 20 minutes away from the Harbour laying inside a natural crater, along with the wreck there is a natural swim through and series of gullies for experienced divers to swim through.
Throughout this dive site hidden beneath Moulia Island there are a number of caves to explore; one of which has an amphora encrusted roof.
A team of American archaeologists investigated this site and believe that it is due to the movement of the sea bed over many, many years (2 thousand to be a little more precise). This dive site is regularly visited by Sea Bream, Damsel fish, various species of Wrasse, Brittle Stars, Moray eel and Octopus.
