Description
The beach of Navagio (Shipwreck Beach) is the most famous of Zakynthos beaches and one of the most famous of all Greece. It is the trademark of the island and has been photographed millions of times. ... Read more
This superb beach is located in the eastern part of the island, close to the Anafotiria village. Huge vertical cliffs of white rocks surround the sand creating a unique and enchanting image. To reach this paradise, one has to take a little boat from the small port of Porto Vromi. Those taxi-boats are leaving every hour and the trip is about 30 minutes. It used to be called Agios Georgios but owes its new name to the shipwreck of a boat that transported illegal cigarettes, in 1983. With the passing years, the sand has completely surrounded the ship, which now looks as if it is emerging out of it. The vestiges of the ship can be seen in the middle of the large white sandy beach which has amazing turquoise and crystalline waters.

The image is Myrtos Beach and is recognised as one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. Used in the film "Captain Corelli's Mandolin", this beach was used in one of the famous scenes from the film. Be careful of the underwater currents if swimming.

Fondly known locally as Shpwreck Bay, accessible only by boat or try your hand at base jumping, not for the faint hearted! Go early as it can get very busy.

The beach is amazing and the sea so crystal and blue.
On the other hand the water might be a little bit cold and the boats create a really bad smell.
But it's definitely one of the beaches you have to visit in your life

they say the ship was washed to shore one night in the storm's and was full of tabacco. The Island didn't have to buy tobacco for years. This is why it has been known as "Tobacco Cove". Take a cruse around the Island for breath taking views.

Navagio is a remote beach on Zakynthos island. You can approach it only by boat. It is a must for those who are going to visit Zakynthos. The water of the sea is really blue and the place is really fantastic! You can't miss it!

Impossibile non conoscere questa spiaggia, che appare in moltissime foto ed è la rappresentazione perfetta di Zante/Zacinto. La spiaggia del Navagio, anche conosciuta come Spiaggia del Relitto, si raggiunge solo via mare ed è così chiamata per via di una nave abbandonata a riva. Il mare qui è cristallino e color turchese. La famosa foto della spiaggia dall'alto viene scattata da un sentiero che si trova immediatamente dopo Anafonitria e dopo del Monastero di San Giorgio: non è segnalato.

Η σταρ της Ζακύνθου. Αυτή η παραλία είναι με διαφορά η πιο γνωστή παραλία του νησιού και όχι άδικα. Εντυπωσιακή τόσο βλέποντας τη από ψηλά όσο και φτάνοντας με καραβάκι από θαλάσσης. Η αλήθεια είναι πως πριν πάω πίστευα ότι το σκαρί του καραβιού ήταν από ξύλο αλλά έπεσα έξω. Φοβερά σμαραγδένια νερά αλλά προσοχή στα μικρά παιδιά γιατί η θάλασσα βαθαίνει απότομα.

Η πιο γνωστή παραλία του νησιού κι όχι άδικα. Τα καταγάλανα, κρυστάλλινα νερά της είναι μαγεία ενώ το κουφάρι του πλοίου ξεχασμένο στη λευκή άμμο, αποτελεί μια παραφωνία που με κάποιο μυστήριο τρόπο δένει απόλυτα με το τοπίο. Προσβάσιμη μόνο από τη θάλασσα, έχει σα βασικό της μειονέκτημα την πολυκοσμία που σε κάποιες στιγμές γίνεται αρκετά κουραστική.
