10 Must-See Greek Beaches


7. Shipwreck Bay

In the 1960’s coastguard members mistakenly ran a cargo ship to shore in Zakynthos, believing it to be a drug runner. Today, the giant skeleton of a ship is still on the beach, near the cliffs that overlook the bay. A popular spot for swimmers, this is one of Greece’s most unusual beach spots worth visiting. However, the beach can be accessed only by boat.

This summer, I visited Shipwreck Bay and I was greatly impressed with the beauty of the beach. The water is amazingly transparent and warm so that it’s hard to stop swimming. The only disadvantage of visiting Shipwreck Bay is that it’s too overcrowded. I don’t prefer to share the beach with hundreds of people, but I really like this place because of its beauty.
