Free Fall At Navagio Beach – On Video!

In one of the most famous beaches of Greece, the Navagio Beach (“navagio” means “shipwreck”) in Zakynthos, a group of adventurous people did base jumping free falls!
Navagio Beach takes its name by the shipwreck which was washed offshore on a secluded beach of Zakynthos and today is one of the most alluring sights on the island.
The shipwreck happened in 1982, when the ship Panagiotis, carrying contraband cigarettes from Turkey in international waters in order to sell them at an agreed point, lost its course and fell into the rocks of the northwestern side of Zakynthos. Until then, the beach was called Agios Georgios.
The local people still remember the thousands of cartons of cigarettes floating in the water and the crew members swimming in order to escape port police. Today the shipwreck is at the center of this secluded beach, which one can visit only by boat and helicopter. Due to the inaccessibility of the area the waters have remained crystal clear.
