Beach Description:

The beach of Navagio (Shipwreck) is the most famous of Zakynthos beaches and one of the most famous of all the Greek beaches. It is the trademark of the island and has been photographed millions of times.

This superb beach is located in the eastern part of the island, close to the Anafotiria village. It was initially called Agios Georgios but the beach owns its new name to the shipwreck (in 1983) of a boat that transported illegal cigarettes; with the years the sand has completely surrounded the ship which looks as if it was emerging of it.

The remains of the ships can be seen in the middle of the large white sandy beach which has amazing turquoise and crystalline waters.
Huge vertical cliffs of white rocks are surrounding the place creating a unique and wonderful 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.
