Naviago Beach is located on the north western shores of Zakynthos and the tiny cove is a stunning mix of white sand and crystal clear turquoise waters surrounded by towering white cliffs with an intriguing rusty shipwreck dominating its sands. The wreck, a boat named Panagiotis, was rumoured to have been attempting to smuggle cigarettes and got stranded in the shallow waters of Naviago while being pursued by the Greek Navy. The captain of the ship recently refuted these claims and blames bad weather and mechanical failure for the shipwreck. Either way, the contrast of the rusted ship against the stunning natural beauty of Navagio has made it a tourist magnet. The cliff top viewpoint above Naviago is almost an hour by road from Zakynthos and can be reached by car, a powerful quad bike and a beach or island tour. The route is marked with signs for Naviago and the nearby Anafonitria Monastery which is en route. The viewpoint, a suspended platform surrounded by railings, is located beside the car park and visitors centre and it is often packed with visitors in search of a selfie and the iconic Naviago shipwreck photo. Be careful! It’s possible to follow a walking path around the cliff side to capture the beach and the shipwreck from different vantage points but, if you decide to do this, please be incredibly careful – it’s a sheer drop to the beach below and there have been recent deaths of tourists doing the same. We were terrified to move even an inch without checking our footing as there are no railings to protect you from falling over the edge.
Thank you for watching my video
