Three Amazing Places in Greece

Shipwreck Beach, Navagio Beach, Zakynthos, Greece

Here’s where we went off the beaten path on our ultimate Greece road trip! :) I’ve been getting a lot of emails recently asking how I usually go about planning these types of trips… Honestly usually I just look on Pinterest and save all the most beautiful pins and add them to my bucket list!

 

Zakynthos

Navagio Beach (aka Shipwreck Beach) on the island of Zakynthos is one of those places that just kept coming up on Pinterest over and over.

Thanks to our driver from Hellenic Private Tours, we were able to just drive around the island stopping at gorgeous overlooks along the way.
