Sometimes people ask me about what it’s like to visit Greece. And I tell them that there is really no place like it. From the crazy metropolis of Athens to the volcanic island of Santorini, it’s unique in every way. And if that isn’t enough, you’ll constantly discover gems like this one…
On the Island of Zakynthos you’ll find one of the most famous beaches in Greece. Navagio Beach, or the Shipwreck, is notable because it is home to the wreck of the alleged smuggler ship Panagiotis; thus, it is often referred to as ‘Smugglers Cove’. If you are going to try and find it, here are the coordinates: 37Â°51â€²28â€³N 20Â°37â€²36â€³Eï»¿ / ï»¿37.85778Â°N 20.62667Â°Eï»¿ / 37.85778; 20.62667.
In case you are interested in exploring the island visually, here is the Google Map to help you along.

I know. Once again, I apologize for the random nature of my blog. It’s a habit! What can I say?

I only wish I had taken that photo Kat! One day I’ll make it to Zakynthos, but not this time. :-(
Did you take that photo? If so, wow!

What an incredible place! I wonder if you can get inside the wrecked ship and look around… And how long it’s been there and all that. I definitely have to do some more research on this – it’s got me super curious! Thanks for sharing, dude!!
(Even though I’m really not into all these off-topic posts! ;)
That is incredibly beautiful. How many shots did it take to get the perfect snap?
