If you want to get to the Shipwreck beach, step on the pebbles (the beach isn’t sandy unfortunately) and swim in the turquoise blue waters, there is only ONE way – by sea. There are multiple tour companies that offer boat trips (at a low price) to this most famous beach in Greece. You’ll also visit other beautiful places off Zakynthos’ coast – like Blue Caves and Xygia Sulfur Beach. All of them are spectacular, however the unbeatable number one is of course Navagio.
You have to bear in mind that the Shipwreck Beach is the most commercial place on the island, and (just like in Thailand), sadly it turned into something I’d compare to ordering a burger in a fast food restaurant. You take a tour, go there to take a swim, click a few photos and in 20 minutes you must leave because the next ship full of tourists is waiting. If I can give you a piece of advice, choose a tour that would go there early in the morning! I did that and when we arrived, it’s hard to believe, but the beach was completely empty! Not for long though, for some 15 minutes. But it was enough to take amazing photos of the shipwreck without the wildly bright, colorful dots spoiling the landscapes – tourists.
