Shipwreck Beach (Navagio Beach)
This stunning Greek beach surrounded by brilliant blue ocean water is an Instagram favorite, and many travelers include Zakynthos on their itinerary specifically to visit this amazing beach in Greece. Navagio Beach is located on the North West corner of Zakynthos Island.
Accessible only by sea, it gives you the idea of hugeness and perfection.
It consists of millions of small pebbles with the blue shades of the sea as far as the eye can see, it results unique in its gender and the relict looks like if it was made by an artist.
The tall lateral walls hide the island till the last minute when out of the blue you get a complete view of the bay.
Waters around Navagio often have electric light blue colour because of the numerous sulphurous caves around the beach and when the sea is rising a large quantity of sulphur radiates, giving the possibility of taking beautiful pictures.
We suggest visiting Navagio in the morning since in the afternoon the sea tends to become bigger and may cause problems to get back.
That rusty old wreck, stranded on the crescent of pale sand, framed by the steep limestone cliffs and the turquoise sea, make a winning photographic combination. You can get that postcard shot yourself, from a metal platform that juts out from the cliff above the beach, where you’ll also find a taverna, ice cream van and stalls selling local honey and souvenirs.
