Antipolis is a former Greek oil tanker that wrecked on the rocks off Victoria Road near Oudekraal Nature Park, South Africa, in July 1977. The wreck lies mostly broken, overgrown with algae, and inhabited by starfish and shellfish.

The wreck lies in shallow water of only 10 meters/32 feet at only 25 meters/82 feet distance from the shore. As such, it is almost always dived from the shore, but entry is kind of difficult as the boulders and slippery and loose.

Once you reach the Antipolis, you need to be careful not to get hurt as the corners and edges are quite sharp. Only certified wreck divers are permitted to go inside it; the currents can be strong inside the wreck. The stern and the boiler room are fairly intact.
