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.

Next, embark on a 3-hour boat cruise from the port in the town of Laganas. Stop at the nearby island of Marathonisi where you can admire its beautiful caves and white sand beaches. Keep a look out for the Caretta turtles who inhabit the surrounding waters. Continue by sailing to the Keri Caves located on the southern coast of Zakynthos, where you can enjoy a stop for swimming. Return to the port, and travel to the Aristeon Olive Oil Press. Learn about the long history of olive oil production on the island and taste some samples.
