So close to Mykonos dive center is the wreck of ANNA II, a 62 meters long cargo ship that sunk in the South-East part of Mykonos on 20 July of 1995. Anna II was built in 1966 by the Fa Hijlkema and Zonen BODEWES SCHEEPWERK N. V. shipyard in Holland, operated for the I/S Knud Sif Kopenhagen, with first name as Knud Sif.
The ship remains in excellent condition and it is possible to enter in a small part of it. The site around the wreck is also very interesting, with a reef with great biodiversity and a lot of big colourfull sponges!
This wreck serves as spectacular artificial reef, attracting an incredible diversity of marine life.
