Navagio Beach – Zakynthos
The Greek Island Beach with several names
- Shipwreck Beach
- Smugglers Cove
- Zakynthos Smugglers Cove
- Beautiful (of course).
- Navagio Beach
Navagio Beach is located in an isolated cove on the coast of Zakynthos, in the Ionian Islands of Greece. Upon the beach sits a shipwreck that is now a of the beach of the beaches legend. The ship was used for smuggling and the cargo was, apparently, cigarettes. It hit the rocks and ended up washed ashore becoming either an iconic eyesore, or a beloved part of the landscape; this is, of course, dependent on whom you are talking to at the time.
Possibly the most famous beach in Greece, Navagio Beach is well worth the effort in getting there. Accessible only by boat you will be overwhelmed by the setting. Boat trips are part of the furniture in Greece. With so many Islands boats are the Car of the Greek Islands.
Iconic and beautiful are understatements to the extreme. You may find it difficult to observe a single publication covering Greek Holidays that will not have an image of Smugglers Cove in it.
This beach has no services due to its remoteness so you need to make sure you bring along all the essentials for your day at the beach, or book a tour with a company which provides all you need.
