Shipwreck Beach, Zakynthos, Greece
For everyone who is in love with the sea, Zakynthos is the place to be.
This amazing island is located west of the Greek mainland and northwest of the Peloponnese. It is famous for its crystal clear waters and astonishing beaches, just like this one, the Shipwreck beach.
The Shipwreck Beach is also called Navagio, but many people know this place by its nickname – the Smuggler’s Cove, because of the big wrecked ship that is believed to be a smuggler’s boat.
Unfortunately, the beach is currently shut down for visitors due to a major landslide which saw hunks of rock falling 60 meters (197 feet) onto the beach below.
Port Authorities have reported that due to the beachside cliff’s collapse in September of 2018, Shipwreck Beach will remain closed until further notice.
Bora Bora, French Polynesia
You could go through a long list of phrases to describe the island of Bora Bora, but probably the best one would be a glimpse into what heaven must look like, at least as it appears here on Earth.
This phenomenal destination is situated northwest of Tahiti in French Polynesia, approximately halfway between Australia and the U.S.A. It’s a tropical paradise surrounded by coral reef beds off its shores and a stunning lagoon inland.
Bora Bora covers an area of only 29.3 square kilometers (just over 11 square miles) but offers plenty of attractions for travelers, from amazing landscapes and the world’s most beautiful beaches to many historical sites.
