    Shipwreck (Navagio)

    On hiring your car, a must for all to visit is the North West coast of Zakynthos.  Here you will find the ‘Shipwreck’ or ‘Smugglers Cove’, also called the ‘Navagio’, probably the most famous beaches in Greece and one of the Worlds most photographed.  The shipwreck happened in the 1980’s, when the ship was grounded after hitting rocks in bad weather whilst being pursued by Greek Navy vessels, as it was carrying contraband cigarettes. This amazing beach can only be accessed by boat.  The best views are from above, but do be careful of the sheer cliff face and the 300m drop.  The best time of the day to get your photos is as early as possible (approx. 1000hrs) before the day trip boats fill the cove.  If you are going to visit by boat aim to have finished your trip before 1500hrs as the sea may have a swell after this time.  One will be amazed at the colours of the sea in contrast with white cliffs.  If you are going to visit by boat do take refreshments with you as there are no amenities on the beach.

    Getting here in your Zakynthos Car Rental

    The best way to get to the 'shipwreck View Point' is to follow the snake like road from the small village of 'Katastari'. Follow the snake like road through the village of Orthonies and turn left to Anafonitria. From her you will see the road to the monastary of Agios Georgios to Krimnon. The windy road from here leads you to the view piont. Be careful as the road can get busy in the summer months. Your GPS system will help you too. Always remember to leave your car locked, in gear with hand brake on, lights switched off and keys stored somewhere safely. If you have an open top car close the roof for safety and possible rain shower.
