Navagio Beach (Shipwreck Beach), Anafonitria

The jewel of the Ionian Sea, Navagio Beach (Shipwreck Beach) sits as an exposed cove famed for its crystal clear water and the skeleton of an abandoned merchant shipthat's been rusting away on the white sand since 1982. The beach stretches along the northwestern shore of Zakynthos, an area defined by its sheer limestone cliffs. The turquoise water lapping against the sandy beach attracts thousands of swimmers, snorkelers, and divers, many of which arrive by cruise ships from nearby ports. For panoramic vistas of this beach, bring along some drinking water and head to the nearby village of Anafonitria, famous for its viewing platform that hangs on the edge of a steep cliff.

  • Probably the best beach in the world! We wish we can stay there for the whole day if not the whole of our vacation. Another one from the Bucket list ticked !  more »
  • Half an hour in the first row in the full sun at a package of just the famous shipwreck to be able to see and to be able to shoot the famous photograph from above. Because the sight is truly stunning, absolutely do despite that it is mega tourist is up there. Of course you don't have to stand in line, you can also click the little wall next to it, about the pound sign steps or more daredevil feats from to make up for the original photo. For us, however, was the comment that this year already 2 people have fallen down for Ballesteros to queue ...

  • Lovely beach. The only flaw to get there with the boats that take very little time on the beach that fills with people. There are no facilities nor shade.

  • Brilliant beach, but in the season overcrowded. Tourist are coming on big ships quite often. It is good to pay some local fisherman to take you there in the early morning. Sea here is really cold, but nicely colored. Shipwreck is quite large.
  • Amazing beach with crystal clear water! It's not a sandy beach, it's with little white and beige stones. It's perfect for diving and everything else!!!
  • Battery for the future life Amazing!Love at first sight.😍 Choose time without too many tourists. But still amazing!!
  • Amazing beach and sea. It's really beautiful. Unfortunately, it's really crowded, it's a shame. But definitely a must see when you're in Zakynthos!
  • Great view to view point. But so many tourist.
