the wonderful blue, electric waters makes you feeling that it's the eighth marvel of the world. The most famous beach all over Greece. The real heaven!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Fabulous! Who cares about the crowd! We were awed by the most beautiful blue water as well as the whiteness of the beach which were both due to the sandstone pebbles of course, so not so easy to walk on at the waters edge! The water was a bit cold (you're not talking Irish sea here) and it did get busy but we forgot about everyone else and were so happy to visit such a beautiful place.
The beach looks better from a distance i thought it was a sand beach until we got of the boat and found out it was pebbles but the sea is a beautiful blue colour but it gets deep quick it was amazing to look up at the cliffs and captain spiros shown us the shipwreck viewing platform it didnt look very safe looking up at it we went with lavante and got there before all the other boats so the beach wasnt busy
We went on the Levante speedboat trip, which is usually the first boat to get there every day, so there were only 24 of us on the beach. It was very atmospheric, and the sea was an amazing colour, though it does get deep very quickly. As has been mentioned in other reviews, there's not much sand - it's mostly limestone pebbles.
We really enjoyed our trip to the shipwreck, but you're really not alone on this beach! Quite a few tour ships were in the cove at the same time so it does tend to get quite busy. The water was an amazing blue colour but very, very cold and it got deep very quickly. The beach is full of chalky pebbles so some parts are hard to walk on. The shipwreck is now totally covered in unnecessary graffiti and we saw several morons photographing their handiwork - total idiots.
SHIPSWRACK..........i will go to zante back only for this amazing beach......
The water was a fabulous turquoise colour and we had so much fun in the waves . Every one just stands waiting to be washed ashore .While everyone bumps into one another I experienced no bad feelings.I would go back to Zante just for this beach.
VERY DISSAPOINTED . I DON'T THINK IT LOOKED LIKE THE PICTURES WE HAD SEEN . WE THOUGHT IT WAS A SANDY COVE BUT IT WAS LARGE WHITE STONES. IN SAYING THAT IT WAS LOVELY TO VISIT AND I AM GLAD I WENT, EVEN THOUGH THE WATER WAS FREEZING.NOT SAFE FOR YOUNG CHILDREN IN THE WATER AS THE CURRENT WAS QUITE STRONG. THE BLUE CAVES WAS SOMETHING ELSE THEY WERE MAGNIFICENT WELL WORTH A VISIT.
I looooved this beach! It looks like Thailand or something!
We hired a car and drove to Ag. Nikolaos near Skinari where we found a boat to take us to the Navagio and Blue Caves, for 4000dr adults, 2000dr children. We had the boat and the beach to ourselves, it was breathtaking! The boat backed as far as it could to the beach, we got into the water and walked onto the beach so take your costumes! It looks just as pretty as it does in the pictures!
The beach is incredibly steep, just walking a few steps and you go from kneedeep to not touching ground. The beach consists of big round white rocks, also underwater, which were exciting to step on, as they slid away under your feet so you'd almost have to -crawl- up on the beach, hehe! But they were really soft to walk on so it wasn't unpleasant. The white stones made the water the most fabulous picturesque greenblue shade, absolutely stunning. I didn't bother much about the ship, but swam around exploring the little caves around the edges of the bay instead. :) // Lina
Sarah Darley: When are you staying at Aphrodite Apartments, we go next week?
Sarah - You can only get to this beach by sea, so you will need to go on one of the many boat trips around the island. Alternatively you could hire a car to get to the viewpoint in the photo. It is about 1 hr from Laganas and then a 15 min walk. Or book on 'Zakfari' who are the only tour which will take you to the postcard view of the wreck.
How do we get there from Aphrodite Aptmnts? do we need a car or can we walk ?
