As others have observed I'm rteally not sure why this wreck has an entry on tripadvisor as it is probably too dangerous to go onboard. No doubt it is possible to sail around it in a motorised boat.

I’m not quite sure why this is an attraction. It is the legacy of some unfortunate event from years ago and I’m surprised it hasn’t been salvaged before now. Interesting however

The wreck is stuck in a small bay between Arrecife's port and Las Caletas city. You can get there afoot or by bus. The bus stop (No 1) is nearly.

Seen this ship on my way from Arrecife to Costa Tequise on my bike. I thought it was really original and authentic and quite a sight to behold especially without prior warning.

Nothing else really to say about this, what you see is what you get. Easily accessible from a little dirt track opposite Restaurante la Estrella.

This is an eye sore in the sea, must have been there for years as it is just rusting away. The state of it is nothing to be proud about and its time the authorities had it removed.
