What I can see

The Shipwreck is the part of Potamos (=river) beach, where a ship that has remained capsized for the past 40 years is visible from the coast. The wreck offers a special underwater exploration experience. Nearby, there are sports facilities, several restaurants, while there is lifeguard supervision during peak season. The Shipwreck is also adjacent to the Epanomi wetland, an area integrated into the NATURA 2000 network. When it’s not too crowded, it is a great place to relax in.

What I can't see

Before peak season (June-August), this is a nudist beach, where visitors can enjoy the wreck in the background. There are nudists here during peak season as well, but they are fewer than the other swimmers. Local fishermen are a unique group. They fish using the ancient method of talianis or dunes, by placing piles with nets in the water, which trap the fish without killing them. This keeps the fish alive before they are actually caught and therefore fresh before they are delivered to neighbouring taverns.
