The scenery is fantastic, but as a very popular tourist viewing spot, can be horrendous queues to the viewing platform

The scenery is fantastic, but as a very popular tourist viewing spot, can be horrendous queues to the viewing platform.
The view from the top of the cliff edge via the very small viewing platform is stunning. Colours you won’t believe exist.
But the key issue is the size of the platform allowing one couple at a time without any organisation managing the viewing. Meaning if some just stands there for 5 minutes (selfie’s, video, and pics via two devices or more) and you’re in a queue with a dozen or more ahead of you, imaging how the tension and frustration builds without any controls. When a coach pulls in it’s just a nightmare!
So be patient if you insist on wanting to soak up the view, it is magical. Potentially best bet is early morning before 10.30, or avoid peak summer period late June to mid Sept. If it’s busy you could be queuing for a while in high temperatures.
Tip, have a person in your family get in queue soonest and allow others to wander around the location to see other points of interest and the trader stalls, then join together when you get close moving on to view point.

Simply amazing

This is one of the places I think anyone should visit in its life.. We have been here in Septembere and was not so crowded, so perfect time to see one of the most beautiful beaches and sea in Europe. Moreover there is a ship wreck which make this place unique.

A terrific day out!
Sep 2021 • Solo
I was picked up by minibus just after 8 at my hotel, weirdly went to highpoint by a church overlooking Zakynthos Town and what a view! Then we went to an amphitheatre where I had an out of body experience, yhe sound there was unreal.
Then onwards to the main event to the cliffs overlooking the shipwreck beach, after a scramble along the rocks down to a flag I was rewarded by the best view I have ever seen!
Onwards to the harbour to get on the boat that would take us to the beach when we arrived, we climbed down onto the beach itself, the beach is actually made of small shells and pebbles which was quite sore to walk on with bare feet, but totally worth it, I stored up the cliffs at where 3 had viewed it earlier that morning, I was amazed at how high it was. Then back on the boat to visit the blue caves, which were also breathtaking, back to shore after a swimstop and back to the minibus , finally after a few more stops for lunch and sight seeing it was back to the hotel, tired and feeling accomplished I had a few cold ones! An outstanding day out, I would recommend it to anyone.

Must see place ⭐️⭐️⭐️ perfect view, incredible nature, breathtaking emotions 🎉 here you can make amazing photos 👌
We were there by car and before all tourists ( about 9-10 am). It’s crowded with big tourist buses all day long.
There is no sun in the morning, it’s white and blue colors appers when the sun is shining, about 11-12 am. Maybe it’s better to go there in sunset ☀️
To the view point you have to go by rocky trail, so it’s better to wear proper shoes 😉

One of the most picturesque beaches you'll ever see
Sep 2021
Incredible view! There's a reason this beach is one of the most famous in the world. Do yourself a favor and don't stand on the very edge of the cliff for that perfect selfie. Exercise common sense and you'll be just fine! Swimming on the beach is also worthwhile for a few minutes, but it's quite crowded, and you have to pay attention to the boats constantly coming in and out to load and unload.

We arrived by private boat early morning so get the most of our experience before everyone else got there. A must do. Stunning clear blue seawater. Bring footwear of some kind as its very pebbly.

Breath-taking view, zero organisation
Sep 2021 • Friends
Definitely a stunning view site, unfortunately quite underorganized. First the rock view point, said to be risky and unprotected, even can be unreachable, as it was in our case. Simply the road was blocked by some officers. No explanation, just clised and we were to turn back. Second try was approaching by sea from Porto Vromi. As it was wavy we were not let to the beach, but at least had a glimpse on it. Really stunning. The water suddenly got light blue when entering the bay of Navagio. With all this said, local authorities should try a bit harder to ensure this place of interest a granted and secure visit and observation.

Great picture at life’s risk

After having to go through a que of cars, you get to go in a que of people to get a (as we understood) a very poor angle to take a photograph.
We decided not to go for it because the line would take about 30 to 45min.

We found a small ledge left from the ‘official’ spot, and decided to go there to see if that would work better.

!! It’s not safe !! But man…. you get good photo’s from there!

If you think it is worth the effort it takes to stand in line for a while to get a decent photo at best, I would recommend coming early, around 9 a 10 o’clock.

Bad management

The beach is beautiful.But a few signs in English or Frensh will help.I got there and saw everyone walking on a wall like 2-3 feet high.So,I said ok this where people walk.I walk for a second a a guard start yelling at us crazy in Greek.I am from California so I thought it might be an earthquake and i jumped and ruptured my quadriceps muscle.Paid 150 euro for Ambulance and went to hospital.They did an Xray but not MRI.They told me your ok.

Just charge an entry charge and invest in signs do not walk here instead of panicking people and make them get hurt.
