The beauty of travel changes lives.

Traveling inspires, pushes you forward, makes you a better person. Broadens your horizons. The moment when we see (and meet) something new, something extraordinary, it stays carved in our brains until the end of our lives. No amount of money or material stuff can replace the joy of traveling and exploring this amazing planet.

Today I’m sharing something extraordinary with you. Something that will take your breath away. Something that you’ll remember on your deathbed.

The Europe’s cradle of civilization, Greece, hides many unreal places and experiences which every traveler should immerse into at least once in a lifetime.

My fellow travelers, meet the Navagio beach.

Navagio Beach

This mesmerizing place is one of the most popular attractions of Zante, and you can see why. The unbelievable formation of white sand and stone, fantastic turquoise waters, and a big rusty shipwreck make this place one of a kind.

The beauty of Navagio demonstrates the power of nature at its finest; the huge eroding stones accumulated the white sand (which is actually ground stone, and not a real sand) over thousands of years, and this place was a hidden gem of Mediterranean for a long time.

Today I will bring you closer to this place. You?ll find out how to get there, some interesting facts about it, what you can do at Navagio beach, what are the expenses, and more. Everything you?ll read here is knowledge accumulated through personal experience and extensive research. My aim is to provide the best information about Navagio, so you can add it to your bucket list and experience its glory. Let?s dive in!

About Navagio

Navagio is located in Zakynthos, an island in the Ionian sea, right off the east Peloponnese coast of Greece. To be more precise, the beach is in the northwest part of this island, close to Anafonitria village. It is surrounded by colossal white limestone cliffs on one side, and crystal clear blue waters on the other, making it accessible only by boat.

The funny thing is that there is a big chance you’ve probably seen some photos of this place since it is maybe THE most photographed location in the entire country, and naturally, it is the biggest tourist magnet of Zakynthos attracting thousands of visitors each summer.

navagio shipwreck beach

Thanks to its beauty and unique setting it has been featured in recognized news websites such as Huffington Post’s The 40 Best Beaches on Earth (#2), and World’s 100 Best Beaches by CNN, to name a few.

Above the beach, there is a spot which offers an astonishing view of the white cliffs and the endless mesmerizing turquoise sea. The cove itself is very deep, enabling boats to dock. Have that in mind when you arrive; if you’re not a swimmer, you shouldn’t go into the water further than few feet. The beach is around 500 meters (1640 feet) wide, and about 50 meters (164 feet) long. The water is pretty salty, saltier compared to the water in resorts on Zante.

Navagio Shipwreck Story

Perhaps even more famous than the mere beauty of this beach is the old, rusty ship sitting in its white sands, thus earning Navagio the nicknames Shipwreck Beach and Smuggler’s Cove.Here is a popular story about how the boat got there.

On October 1, 1980, the Greek authorities received a tip that a freight liner by the name of Panayiotis was smuggling contraband cigarettes. Allegedly, this illegal delivery was on its way from Turkey, and it was an order made by the Italian Mafia. In an attempt to escape the law, Panayiotis got stranded in the shallow waters of Navagio, and the crew fled the scene leaving the boat at the beach. Rumor has it that the locals took advantage of the cargo and that no tobacco products were sold on the island for the next four years.

As entertaining as it might be, this story is actually not true. Charalambos Kompthekras, the captain of Panayiotis, spoke about what really happened in a documentary, where he said the accident occurred due to bad weather and a mechanical failure.

How to reach Navagio Beach?

Now that you’ve gotten familiar with the history and splendors of the beach let’s proceed to the ways to get to it and experience it firsthand. As you can see on the map, most towns and resorts are situated in the south while Navagio is in the northwestern part. There are a few ways to get there, each differing in prices, time and mode of transport.

An important thing to know is that the beach itself is accessible ONLY by boat. Land transport will take you only to towns, ports, and the viewing platform on the cliffs above the beach. The places where a boat to Navagio is available are Zakynthos Town port, Agios Nikolaos port/beach, Skinari, and Porto Vromi.

What you need to know about the boat cruises

Middle-sized to big boats sail only from Zakynthos Town port, and these vessels provide more shade and space for the passengers. Smaller boats leave from the other three ports.

If you are starting your cruise from Zakynthos Town, Agios Nikolaos or Skinari (east side of the island), know that the tour to Navagio beach will usually include a stop at the amazing Blue Caves. Larger boats, unfortunately, cannot go inside the caves, so those who want to experience these natural wonders from the inside should opt for a smaller boat.

The length of the cruises can vary, depending on the location and vessel. The cruises from Zakynthos Town can last from 4-8 hours in respect to the type of boat.

So, what are the options? Well, that depends on where you are staying, and in this guide, you will find the optimal ways to reach Navagio considering your location on the island.

1. Take a cruise tour organized by an agency

This is perhaps the simplest way since the agency will arrange a bus which takes you from your resort to the port in Zakynthos town, where you’ll catch a cruiser, and bring you back to your accommodation after the tour.

navagio shipwreck tour

The bus and boat ride are included in the price, so make sure to bring food and drinks with you, or just some extra money since you can buy it on the cruiser too.

You can find representatives of tour agencies such as MyTours in every resort, and they are reliable. When you arrange a trip with them, you’ll get instructions when to come to a pickup point, and enjoy for the rest of the day.

Estimated cost

Depending on the agency, tour prices can range from €20-45 plus another €20 per person for food and beverages.

2. Bus to Zakynthos Town and a boat to Navagio

If you happen to be staying in Laganas, Argassi, Alykes, Tsilivi or Kalamaki, there is a KTEL bus available which can take you to Zakynthos Town. Once you get there, you will need to take a 15-minute walk to the port where you can hop on a boat tour to Blue Caves and Navagio.

KTEL Bus station Zakynthos

It’s not hard to reach the harbor, just keep going down to the sea, because the KTEL station in Zante town is located uphill.

Here’s the map of Zante town from KTEL:

Estimated costs

A one-way bus ticket costs €1.80 and prices of cruises from Zakynthos Town go for around €30.

3. Take a car, quad or motorbike to one of the ports and catch a boat ride to Navagio

This is the priciest option, and it requires the most hassle, but it is perfect for those who enjoy going on adventures and exploring new places. This way you can see some amazing and not-so-famous spots, which you wouldn’t be able to experience otherwise, and create your unique tour of Zakynthos. In our opinion, this is the best option.

Those who haven’t arrived at Zakynthos by car don’t have to worry because there are car, quad and motorbike rentals in every resort.

The four ports where you can find boats to Navagio are located in different vicinities from the beach, which means that certain options will require more traveling by land and others more traveling by sea. The best choice for those who want to sail more is to take a boat from Zakynthos Town, and folks who want to drive more should go for the other three ports – Agios Nikolaos, Skinari and Porto Vromi. Both ways have their advantages and disadvantages:

Going solo on a rented bike/quad to a port of your choice

To make it easier for you, I’ve made custom maps that can guide you from each resort to every port on the island. Some tips and advice for every map are included hoping that it could help you with your decision.

Estimated costs

If you want to rent a car, quad or motorbike the prices and conditions will differ from company to company. Also, certain rental services require a minimum amount of days, usually three.Car rentals start from €20 per day. Quads and motorcycles can be rented for as cheap as €12 per day.Do your research and compare a couple of different services and you will find the optimal one.

  • Boat trips from Agios Nikolaos, Skinari, and Porto Vromi cost around €15, and from Zakynthos Town about €30.

  • Other expenses include gasoline which goes from €0,57 to €1,47 per liter. The cost depends on the type of fuel as well as the gas station.
  • Don’t forget to bring food and LOTS of water!

Driving Maps

I’ve made some custom maps for you to use to get to ports connected to Navagio. I’ve marked many places of interest that can be useful and improve your journey & experience.

Here are some tips to make this adventure safer and successful:

  • The heat is strong during the summer season. If you don’t want sunburns, don’t go half-naked on a bike/quad, even in the car.
  • If you’re traveling by quad or bike to a far destination, remember to pack some long sleeves and hoodies. Returning to your resort from the northern part of the island can be very cold.
  • If you’re going on a longer route, prepare more supplies. You can expect some tavernas and stores alongside, but there will be many areas without them, so it will be better to stock up.
  • Climbing up from Laganas up north can be fun during the day, but going down during the night might be very dangerous because of the sand on the road.
  • The roads have many sharp and U-turns which will require very careful driving. Especially during the night.
  • Youngsters drive like crazy in Laganas. It’s a well-proven fact (several accidents in that resort and surrounding areas ended with fatal consequences.
  • When you’re driving through inland of Zakynthos, you’ll encounter many stunning views. It’s completely fine to stop by and admire but think about your safety, and the safety of other participants in the traffic. Roads are narrow in many areas.

  • When you’re in areas near the sea, the gusts of wind can be pretty strong, especially in huge open areas. When you’re on a light bike, it’s super-important to slow down and be extra careful in these areas.




Things to do at Navagio

When you finally arrive at Navagio, you will be amazed. The impression that you will get cannot be described by words.

Besides pure awe that this beach provokes, you might wonder, what to do at Navagio? The place is surrounded by huge cliffs, has a large boat in the middle, and a stunning sea.

Navagio turquoise waters The moment you arrive, you’ll jump off the boat or a cruiser, and please put your shoes on. They will get wet, but they will prevent serious damage to your feet.

Here are some exciting things to do on Navagio:

  • Explore the whole bay on foot – take a small hike around the entire bay and admire the wondrous work of nature. You’ll notice some very impressive sights and stone patterns, small holes, and rocks.
  • Find a unique rock to have as a souvenir. This little fella can be ten times more worthy as a memory than a regular souvenir you can get in a shop.
  • Enjoy the waves at the shore – the turquoise waters around here are very cold, much colder compared to all other resorts on the island. This is because of the currents, and the depth of the sea at this point. The shore is very steep, and the sea will get very deep after just a few steps in.The currents are often very strong, creating high waves. Expect some high impacts and very fun times (which might leave a bruise or two on your body, because of the small rocks being carried by streams).
  • Snorkel in the fantastic turquoise sea – if you’re skilled enough to snorkel, and are not afraid of some stronger currents, the experience to snorkel around Navagio is amazing.

    To reach the sea bottom when you swim away from the shore, you will have to be a good diver, because it is very deep. The visibility isn’t good, no matter how good diving goggles you have.If you’re skilled enough and have a decent lung capacity, you might be able to reach the bottom.Who knows, you might find a seashell there? That would be a feat you will never forget.
  • Explore the side beaches & caves – there are some unique places to explore on both sides of Navagio. There is an additional small beach with ultra-fine sand on the left side, and big caves to swim in on the right.
    If you are brave enough, you can try doing them both. Just swim from one side to another. You will have to be very strong, experienced swimmer to achieve this feat.I myself have explored the caves, and they go 100m deep. The water rushes in with every wave, making thunderous noise and storming the small chambers, sometimes lifting you up to hit the ceiling with your head.This one-of-a-kind experience is something that only one out of ten thousand tourists reaches. People are simply either afraid or lazy to explore these caves.
    But believe me, they are more than worthy!

Here are some things NOT to do on Navagio:

  • Many people rush to get near the boat and start carving their names on it. I know leaving the mark in this world feels cool, especially in such a magical place like Navagio, but please, resist the urge to carve your name onto the ship hull.As you’ll notice, there are thousands of names carved already, and your name will be in the huge crowd. On the other hand, you’ll damage the ship further, and at one point, it will get destroyed completely.If it happens sometimes, you’ll read about it in the news, and you’ll know you contributed to this. Please don’t do that.
  • Some people tend to climb on the hull of the shipwreck, jeopardizing their safety significantly. The shell is almost entirely wrecked, rusted, with many sharp edges and weak points. A little slippage or unstable move might bring you to serious harm. Like, severe.
  • Throwing garbage on the beach, and in the sea. Don’t even get me started on this one…

It’s a paradise tucked and hidden in between jagged cliffs. Someday soon, I will capture this scene with my own camera.”

      Hey Cedrik,

      The price is from 2017 – the time the guide was written. On the other hand, the price varies based on the service provider.
