The MV Karwela was sunk in August 2006 and is accessible from the shore. However, this may be problematic due to the rocky shoreline which dots the shore near this wreck. The MV Karwela was first launched in 1957 and arrived in Malta to serve as a passenger ferry on 1986. Due to its large structure, the MV Karwela can be easily accessed from various parts. Many divers also visit this wreck to see a vintage Volkswagen Beetle which mysteriously appeared on the wreck following its scuttling. It is widely believed that this was the result of a prank by local divers.
