How to get to Zakynthos


This corner of the Ionian Islands has the peculiarity of having been the final destination of a smugglers ship, Panagiotis, which was shipwrecked and ended up stranded here. Most tourists arrive by sea, taking one of the mini-ferries that cross the island from Zakynthos city or from nearby ports. In addition, private ships and cruise ships arrive that cross the Mediterranean.

Without infrastructure but full of tourists


There is no infrastructure of any kind on the beach, but the ferries put up walkways that allow access to the boats, as if they were floating beach bars.
