The island of Zakynthos is home to one of Greece’s finest and most easily recognisable beaches. It is not just the beach of Navagio itself that is unique but the fact that it is home to a shipwreck.

The ship in question was the Panagiotis and it is believed that it was a smugglers ship that ran aground in stormy weather whilst trying to elude the Greek customs. Now the wreck lies half buried in the fine sand at the foot of the sheer limestone cliffs which rise out of the clear blue waters.
