5. Zakynthos: Shipwreck Beach, Viewpoint, Blue Caves Day Tour
Explore all the must-see spots in Zakynthos. Enjoy Shipwreck Beach, the Blue Caves, impressive viewpoints, and more. The first stop is Bochali Hill, the old neighborhood of Zakynthos town, experience the views of the town and the port that are stunning. Then head to the Shipwreck Viewpoint. Nature gave us this special place to enjoy seeing from the top, crystalline waters, steep limestone formations, and a rusty old boat in the middle of the white beach. Soak into the magnificent blue of the water and sky. After a quick stop to use the restrooms, at Porto Vromi in Anafonitria or Agios Nikolaos (according to the weather conditions) take the boat (medium size) for a 3 hours mini cruise to the Shipwreck beach and Blue Caves. Discover the location that makes this island so unique, the Navagio or Shipwreck beach with its clear white pebble sands. As soon as you approach, it gives you a spectacular turquoise color of the water. The beach is closed, for safety reasons, because the area is still prone to landslides. Even though we cannot land on the beach, our captain drives the boat right up to the shoreline so you can take photos of the wreck by itself, without any tourists around. It is a memory that you won't forget. Stop for a swim at Sfogio Beach which is close to Navagio and it is safe to go and explore this stunning also pebble beach. Head to the amazing blue caves of the west side of the island with an extraordinary shade of blue in some spots, we'll get up close to the caves and go through some of them, a great opportunity to jump off the boat, swim, or snorkel. It is time for lunch until now, prepare your palate for amazing tastes at one of the most beautiful Greek, traditional, mountain taverns in the village of Anafonitria, with a family atmosphere and great service. The famous 2,000-year-old olive tree is located in the village of Exo Chora. It is one of the seven oldest olive trees in the Mediterranean, and probably one of the oldest olive trees in the world. It still produces olives to this day. Here you will find some traditional products of the area and the local farmers that you can taste for free as oil, olives, wine, and liqueurs as well as biological beauty products. The next stop is Xigia Beach, the place where the springs provide a natural spa due to the sulfur and collagen that have healing properties. And if you need any refreshments on the beach, look out for the most ingenious and funny way they get drinks down to the beach. It is very picturesque and has good photo opportunities from the clifftop. The last stop will be Therianos Family Farm, an organic farm where they cultivate a wide range of fruits and vegetables, herbs, and flowers. Their Olive Oil was awarded the Gold Standard at the International Society, Olympia Awards. They also produce a selection of wines and the famous black raisins.
