The Most Beautiful Shipwrecks From Around The World

Brightly Colored Decay


Along the shore of Batumi, Georgia’s main coastal town, a Turkish tanker called The Özlem (Turkish for “Desire”) ran ashore and was thus abandoned. Decay caused the ship to completely break in half, and eventually the middle section sank into the water, but the blue-colored, rusted ends still jut out of the water today. The colorful wreck has now become a bit of a tourist attraction for the area, and the kids from the surrounding towns love to use the remains as a diving board into the ocean.
