Navagio BeachLocation: North Zante Activites: Swiming, Shipwreck, Boat Trips Daily
Ranked number one in the top 10 attractions to visit in Zante, this picturesque place is known as the Shipwreck Beach. It is accessible only by sea, which may give you an idea of how vast it is. Hosting a shipwreck, the beach looks like something right out of a ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ set! There are millions of shiny blue pebbles lying on the beach making it seem like a masterpiece from an artist’s sketchbook. The waters of the beach radiate with dazzling shades of light blue which result from the surrounding Sulphur caves.
This makes for beautiful panoramic photos you can take from a park on the top hills of the beach. To visit Navagio, you will have to catch a short daily taxi-boat ride from the close bay of Aghios Nikolaos or Porto Vromi. Be sure to visit the beach during the morning since the tides get bigger during the afternoon. You cannot leave Zante without experiencing this iconic destination!
