Navagio Beach (Greek: Ναυάγιο), or Shipwreck Beach, is an exposed cove, sometimes referred to as 'Smugglers Cove', on the coast of Zakynthos, in the Ionian Islands of Greece. It has been so named since 1983, when the alleged smuggler ship Panagiotis was wrecked on the beach while transporting cigarettes.
Navagio is located on the north-west shore of Zakynthos (Zante), in the Municipality of Elation. The area is defined by its sheer limestone cliffs, white sand beaches, and clear blue water, which attract thousands of tourists yearly. The strip of beach is accessed only by boat. Regular tours to the beach depart from Porto Vromi to the south, and from Agios Nikolaos and Cape Skinari to the north-east. Boats also arrive from the harbour of Zakynthos city.

il pov mi fa girare la testa, ma la foto è molto bella.
Splendido mare, inserito tra le alte rocce, da qui si capisce perfettamente come avvenga l'erosione.
Bel colpo, spero ci sia stata una strada abbastanza confortevole per salire lassù.

great to see you back again, nice to see new pics in your gallery.
I was recently in Greece, we wanted to visit here but just didn't have the time :(
lovely photo from above, i feel as if I'm right there on the cliff edge with you - there's that sense of drama with the cliff.
the colors of blue are amazing arent' they!

Absolutely gorgeous view!
The rocks are very impressive in the foreground and the other dramatic cliffs of the bay. The note about the shipwreck is interesting.

καλώς ήρθες και πάλι στο ΤΕ, ελπίζω όλα να πηγαίνουν καλά! Η φωτογραφία σου από το Ναυάγιο είναι πανέμορφη, το φως της δίνει ιδιαίτερη λάμψη και τα χρώματα είναι μαγευτικά. Μου αρέσει πολύ ο τρόπος που αξιοποίησες το τόσο ψηλό σημείο λήψης και συνδύασες αρκετά χαρακτηριστικά, υφές και χρώματα του τοπίου. Πολύ ωραίο το βάθος αλλά και τα σχήματα που έχουν δημιουργηθεί μέσα στο στενό κάδρο. Συγχαρητήρια και ευχαριστώ!
Να είσαι καλά και καλό μήνα,

You have rekindled memories, here!
I love how you have managed to capture the sense of depth whilst still having a very fine composition. I don't think anyone with vertigo will enjoy this view!
Your photograph will have convinced people that Zante is well worth a visit.
Have a lovely day,

Quel point de vue vertigineux. On a l'impression de plonger vers la baie aux eaux limpides . Les bateaux semblent tout petits de cette hauteur. L'ensemble est d'une belle netteté.

Wow! What a super capture of this truly amazing view! With all intensive blue tones it looks simply magical. Very well seen and composed with a great technique. Like it!
Have a nice weekend!

The cliffs are framing well the beach. The point of view is showing the details, the colors of the cliffs and of the beach. The good luminosity is is making the colors to stand out. Have a nice day.
Angshu (56760) 2014-08-14 2:00
The colour of the water is quite unbelievable...and the two blues we have in the same frame are interesting. Your high vantage POV allows us to see the boats and of course the prime attraction, Panagiotis...

Wonderful POV for the view of the bay and the small boats down there. I like the different shades of blue of the water. Well captured.
