Shipwreck Beach, Zakynthos, Greece
For everyone who is in love with the sea, Zakynthos is the place to be.
This amazing island is located west of the Greek mainland and northwest of the Peloponnese. It is famous for its crystal clear waters and astonishing beaches, just like this one, the Shipwreck beach.
The Shipwreck Beach is also called Navagio, but many people know this place by its nickname – the Smuggler’s Cove, because of the big wrecked ship that is believed to be a smuggler’s boat.
Unfortunately, the beach is currently shut down for visitors due to a major landslide which saw hunks of rock falling 60 meters (197 feet) onto the beach below.
Port Authorities have reported that due to the beachside cliff’s collapse in September of 2018, Shipwreck Beach will remain closed until further notice.
