On 2 October 1980, a freightliner, the MV Panagiotis, ran aground in the waters around Zakynthos Island, after stormy weather and bad visibility. The ship was abandoned and still rests buried in the limestone gravel of the beach that now holds the famous nickname Navagio Beach (Shipwreck beach). Navagio is located on the north-west shore of Zakynthos (Zante), in the Municipality of Elation.
The area is defined by its sheer limestone cliffs, white sand beaches, and clear blue water, which attract thousands of tourists yearly. The strip of beach is accessed only by boat. Regular tours to the beach depart from Porto Vromi to the south, and from Agios Nikolaos and Cape Skinari to the north-east. Boats also arrive from the harbour of Zakynthos city.
Navagio is a popular BASE jumping location.
Some of the scenes of the 2016 hit Korean drama series, Descendants of the Sun was filmed here.
