See a series of stranded, rusty ships and boats of all sizes scattered along the beach at Ship's Cemetery (Graveyard). Unless you take a 4x4 vehicle and hire a local to help you, accessing this peculiar site can get quite challenging and unpredictable. Once you reach the inhospitable shores, have your camera at the ready to take photographs and videos of this haunting landscape. Due to reports of assaults, remember to travel in groups, preferably with two vehicles, and always wear shoes since ship debris may cut you. You won't find any places to eat or drink, so bring food and water with you.
