ABU NUHAS (KIMON M.)
The Abu Nahas is also called ‘Beans Wreck’. This has everything to do with the cargo, which consisted at the time of beans. The ship hit the reef in 1978. The deepest point is at 31 meters and it is completely on its starboard side. Because the wreck does not lie in the current, there is little vegetation. However, there are large moray eels that live in the Abu Nuhas and around the wreck you will find batfish.
