The Bandak was a 40 metre 262grt steamer built in Norway in 1893 which ran ashore in fog in February 1949 with the loss of 7 men. 

The stern section is relatively intact, and stands about 4m clear of the seabed. A boiler and the engine are visible, and the bronze propeller is still in place. A mast lies out along the seabed, but the wheelhouse has gone. The bow section is broken off and smashed to pieces. The wreck lies roughly north-south with the bows south and shallowest.
