The jewel of the Ionian Sea, Navagio Beach (Shipwreck Beach) sits as an exposed cove famed for its crystal clear water and the skeleton of an abandoned merchant shipthat's been rusting away on the white sand since 1982. The beach stretches along the northwestern shore of Zakynthos, an area defined by its sheer limestone cliffs. The turquoise water lapping against the sandy beach attracts thousands of swimmers, snorkelers, and divers, many of which arrive by cruise ships from nearby ports. For panoramic vistas of this beach, bring along some drinking water and head to the nearby village of Anafonitria, famous for its viewing platform that hangs on the edge of a steep cliff.
