Rusty ship

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.

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.

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.

We came upon this old boat anchored in a small bay up the coast from Arrecife. There is a lovely coastal path running both to Puerto del Carmen and also in the Costa Teguise direction.

We hired bikes from Costa Teguise to Arrecife when we came across this shipwreck. To an adult it may not seem a big deal, but my 9yr old son was wowed by the sight of it, esp as he has been learning about the Titanic at school!!
