Photo Spot Details

Zakynthos is a Ionian Island. It’s located south of Kefalonia. An Island with probably one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. One of them is the famous Navagio beach. As a photographer that beach is probably one of those that you won’t miss. Other ones that would be nice to see are Gerakas, Kalamaki, Agios Nikolaos, Porto Zoro and Spanzia beach. There are two cruise routes that you can take on the island. One will take you to Navagio beach. The other one takes you to Blue Caves. One of the attractions of the island are turtles. They are known to get pretty close to land so if you have an underwater camera you might be able to get some nice photos.

Tips

1. There are a lot of spots for trippod huggers.
2. I almost didn’t ever unscrew my polarizing filter of the lens while I was there.

      Sunset or sunrise. There is a small sightseeing platform from which you can take photos.
