Shipwreck and Blue Caves tour 

The shipwreck beach also called as Navagio on the Greek island. The beach is indeed the most beautiful in the world, granted that it’s viewed from the edge of the cliff that surrounds it.

In order to get the best view of the shipwreck beach you must see it from the top of the limestone cliffs surrounding it. It’s not possible to climb from the sea level. The only way to get there is by land. The best way is to step on the pebbles and swim in the turquoise blue waters, there is only one way by sea .There are also tour companies that offer a boat trip to this beach.

Shipwreck beach is the most commercial place on the island; you have to be quick during a visit on this beach. You take a tour go there to take a swim, click a few photos and in 20 minutes you must leave because the next ship is full of tourist waiting there.

Blue Caves are quite popular phenomena that can be found not only in Greece, it is also found in Malta, Montenegro, Albania, and Brazil. But those in Zakynthos were absolutely spectacular with limestone arches, turquoise water that seemed glowing from the bottom of the sea and abundance of colourful fish. One can also enjoy a bit of swimming and snorkelling. The blue caves have also interesting arches created by erosion along thousands of years, which allow you to go through these caves and get actually surrounded by this surreal environment. However there is one way of being a part of that marvellous scenery apart from getting surrounded by the caves arches. The blue caves are obviously the soft spot for those who like diving.

For those who are not fond of diving, this trip is a good excuse to sail as well as to get away from the town and enjoy this peaceful place with such stunning views.

Nightlife of Zakynthos is shared in two parts, depending on people’s preferences. For those who wish to pass a quiet evening, Zakynthos centre and Vassilikos villages are the ideal locations. You can enjoy a dinner under the sounds of Zakynthian cantara in one of the restaurants that exist. These regions are full of restaurants, taverns and cafeterias for those who prefer a relaxing night. For the other category of visitors who are fun of crazy entertainment, the southern part of the island Argasi, Tsilivi, laganas, alykes and Kalamaki are famous. These are tourist centres and during summer are full of crowd. Here there are many bars clubs and discos and the party begins in the early in the evening and continues till sunrise.
