Zakynthos Island: Navagio Shipwreck Beach & Blue Caves Tour

1. Zakynthos Island: Navagio Shipwreck Beach & Blue Caves Tour

After you're picked up from your hotel or nearby accommodation, your guide will share with you the day's tour plan. Following this you will explore the north-east of Zakynthos Island, with time for photo stops in Katastari (with panoramic views of Alykes Beach), Xigia beach (a natural spa with sulfur and collagen) and Makris Gialos Beach (a crystal clear and rocky beach). Afterwards, you will have the chance to board a glass-bottom speedboat and visit the Navagio Shipwreck beach. On the way back to the harbor, you'll get the chance to swim inside the beautiful blue caves of the area. When you arrive back from your boating experience, it will be time for lunch at the shipwreck panoramic viewpoint. Following lunch, your tour will wrap up with some more chances for photos in Exo Chora (a 2000-year-old olive tree), Agios Sostis (Cameo Island) and Kalamaki Beach (an 8-kilometer beach). This is simply an amazing day tour and cruise to Zakynthos that will truly take you to paradise.

If you’re undecided about which tour company to go with…BOOK THIS ONE! The guides were amazing, didn’t rush too much and super friendly. It was a long day but they made it enjoyable! The views were beautiful..make sure you bring hiking shoes for the overlook of shipwreck beach. The lunch stop at the taverna was VERY GOOD! Book Now.❤️

Perfect it was great Thanks to Spiros our guide! On the other hand we did not do Agios Sostis (on the island of Cameo) as well as the beach of Kalamaki

Our guide was Spiros, and he was great! Plenty of fun and very helpful. He knows exactly where you can take the best pictures.

A very complete tour lead with a lot of professionalism and good sense of humor.
