Hi everyone, after visit Turkey, I continue my work trip to Greece. Actually, I came to Greece for attended a seminar, but before it held, I'm making time for explore Greece first. Accompanied by my local friend, Linda, she takes me to the one of famous beach in this country. Anyway, Linda is a lecturer who love diving, so she know many beach in this city.
The most important thing is this beach only can access by boat. So I start my journey from Zakynthos Town Port then use small boat to this beach. Actually, you can go to this beach from Agios Nikolas port, Skinari or Porto Vromi also.
But, if you want the simple thing, just take a cruise tour which will organize everything :)
Navagio beach is located in Zakynthos Island, right off the east Peloponnese coast of Greece. To be more precise, this beach is in the northwest part of this island, near Anafonitria Village. Above the beach, there is a spot which offers a view of the white cliffs and turquoise sea water which is very deep. The beach is around 500 meters wide and 50 meters long, if you are not swimmer I suggest you to not go into water very far.
At the past, Navagio known as Agios Georgios but now mostly people called it Shipwreck. It because in this beach there is Panagiotis shipwreck which is people believe that it's a smugglers' ship. Although this ship is very old and look scary, but this ship is charm and make this beach more beautiful and unique.
By the history this beach is dark and scary, it doesn't make tourist afraid to go there. Otherwise, they are interesting to see this Panagiotis Shipwreck. So, when I arrive there, I want to swim directly because the water color is very bright. But, before I swim, I went to look inside this shipwreck which is very incredible.
Beside swim, thing you can do in this beach is exploring the beach bu using boat or cano. You can see cave around this beach..
Well, are you interesting to visit this place? I believe you are interesting because I do want to come back to this place again :) Watch this video for more excitement..

If you are still not sure for going alone, you can choose tour package which offered in Zakynthos City. They have so many tour package to explore this exotic beach and cave. Don't forget to wear your swimsuit, sunblock and sunglasses. By the way, the best time to visit this beach is in early morning or after 3 pm because except that would be many ship anchored there.
