Just make sure you wear very durable sandals, since the rocks are almost razor sharp at the beginning of the beach. I was also expecting the beach to be bigger it is quite small. Other than this it is beautiful and makes a really nice day trip. I'd really recommend going on a boat trip that they were selling when... More

A great place to visit only accessible by boat, well worth the visit with some great views en rout including pilot whales and dolphins if you are very lucky like i was. All in all a great day out.

One of my favourite places on earth, and one day, if I work up the courage I will go base jumping here too. (Although the year I went was the year a man tragically died while doing this.) I only did a half day trip, and I would definitely spend a lot longer here next time, the unfortunate thing about... More

A must see if visiting Greece. Stunning view! Crystal clear waters amd white pebble beach! The only downside is that the shipwreck is full of writings and graffiti, wish it was rather kept as original and untouched.

We came here on a day excursion which was great. Warm day, sitting outside atop a boat, watching dolphins play in the wake & waves from the boat. We went round the whole island, which took most of the day, plenty opportunity to take photos and the sea is such a glorious colour. This was billed as the highlight of... More

It was one of my dream place and It's very difficult to explain about the beauty of Navagio Beach, It not only the beach, it's also about the whole journey to Navagio. It's incredibly blue. There is nothing to talk about the beauty but the only thing that bothered me which was too many people on that small beach. I... More

Do not make the mistake of visiting Zante without making a stop to see this incredible sight! The viewing platform is quite small and during the peak of tourist season, the wait in line can be quite long. Visit earlier in the day to avoid the heat of the midday sun. Watch out of road signs that read "Shipwreck" but... More

The moment you approach the shipwreck beach by boat you will be astonished by the amazing view: a mix of a very deep blue color cut sharply with a light blue near the sea shore in addition to the very white sand and gravel. It is surrounded by high sharp cliffs falling directly to the sea and some green trees... More
