Lina wreck is one of Croatia’s most photogenic locations. Divers can swim throughout its decomposing cabins and see the holes in the lower part of the deck where the reef did its damage. Divers can swim along the valley where there is a wall and finish the dive near the coast where there is also a small cave 3m/9ft deep.
