The Shipwreck is one of the most photographed sights in Greece. It is considered as one of the most beautiful beaches in Greece.

With the years passing, the sand completely surrounded the ship which looks now as it emerges from 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. Huge vertical cliffs of white rocks are surrounding 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. These taxi boats are leaving every hour and the trip is about 30 minutes.

    Best beach on the island
    We went to Navagio by taxi boat (the excursion also included Marathonisi and Keri caves). This is the beach you see in all posters and travel guides of Zakynthos, an amazing beach with picturesque ambience and crystal water. Probably the best beach on the island. I just wish it wasn't so crowded when we went, I believe I would have enjoyed more my time there.

    The treasure of Zakynthos
    Our excursion to Navagio left us with the best pictures to remember from Zakynthos. These are the cleanest water I have ever seen. The water was like crystal, pure and great crystal! I am sad to see that some peope do not respect the environment and pollute the beaches, but fortunately this is not the case with Navagio. Please keep this beach safe and clean, it is the treasure of Zakynthos!
