How Did The World’s Most Famous Shipwreck Come To Be?




A stunning island off the southwest coast of Greece, Zakynthos boasts magnificent beaches, secluded coves and verdant valleys. But the island is probably more famous outside Greece for Navagio Beach, a little cove with a pristine beach and crystal clear waters home to a famous shipwreck. In this article, discover the story behind this wayward boat and how it ended up on one of Greece’s most famous beaches.


There is no doubt that Navagio Beach (Shipwreck Beach) is one of the most famous and most photographed beaches in Greece. Located on the north-west shore of the Ionian island of Zakynthos (also known as Zante), Navagio Beach, previously known as Agios Giorgos, became an impromptu ship graveyard when the MV Panayiotis washed up on its shores in October 1980.
