Beach on the Greek island of Zakynthos

Greek Island Beaches – Navagio

Posted on Posted in Ancient Greece, Greek Islands, Romantic Greece

Ah, how lucky the ancient Greeks were to have their islands. Here we see the beach at Navagio Bay on Zakynthos Island, where a shipwreck is a popular attraction — along with the pure white sand and clear blue Mediterranean Sea. Anyone with a ship, yacht or small boat tries to make it here and find a berth where their passengers can get out and enjoy this spectacular bit of nature.

This attractive island is just west of the Gulf of Corinth, and just south of the larger island of Kefallonia. Its pristine beach is off the beaten path, accessible only by sea. It is found on the northwestern side of the island, where pine-covered mountains meet sea-level beaches rather abruptly. And to enjoy it, all you have to do is get there.
