The stunning beaches of Zakynthos

Zakynthos ● Zante ● 08 July 2017

The Shipwreck Beach in Zakynthos is considered among the best beaches worldwide. It is an exposed sandy cove, which owes its name to the wreck of a ship called Panagiotis that is believed to have been a smugglers ship. The area of the beach attracts thousands of tourists yearly, but you can access it only by boat. This popular site is also a famous base jumping location. The beauty of the landscape, the colour of the waters and the combination of the golden sand with the shipwreck create a picture that is a trademark of Greece.

However, Zakynthos has many other beautiful beaches, all of which have the crystal-clear waters of the Ionian Sea, soft sand, tourist facilities and vivid beach bars.

Kalamaki Beach (Zakynthos) is thanks to its location near Zakynthos airport one of the most developed tourist resorts.
