What to see in Zakynthos: Shipwreck Beach (Navagio Beach)
Shipwreck Beach Zakynthos (also called Navaglio Beach) is among the most famous in the Mediterranean and its image from above is shown on all the tourist brochures of Greece. Inaccessible by road, nestled between high white cliffs, lapped by deep blue sea from the astonishing beauty. Unfortunately, his reputation was also his downfall: so beautiful from above, how utterly ruined once you reach your destination because of the disproportionate mass tourism.
Also add that the beach is located on the side of the island more exposed to winds, sea often choppy and waves crashing on the sand giants of white pebbles, making it difficult for mooring boats and not always possible precisely because of the conditions of sea. Result is that if you arrive with a boat of limited size, on windy days you'll have to swim from the boat to get to Shipwreck, without being able to bring anything.
It should also be added that the beach is in the shade until at least 10:15, so it would be useless to arrive early because you lose the typical deep blue color of the water.
The excursion departing from Aghios Nicholaos lasts 2 ½ hours and costs 15 Euros. It 'will be a stop of 45 minutes on the beach (I honestly can not wait to start), a short visit to the Blue Caves and a 15-minute stop for a dip in the crystal clear waters of the nearby rocky coves, undoubtedly the most deserving of the entire round.
For your accomodation in Zakynthos Island I recommend Hotel Venus, 10-minute walk from beautiful Kalamaki beach, well appreciated by customers and with great value for money.
