Famous Greek shipwrecks you can see without having to dip in the water

There’s the people who like to dive and enjoy the otherworldly view of famous and not-so-famous shipwrecks and then there’s the rest of us who prefer to remain on the surface but would also like a similar experience.

There are many shipwrecks in the Greek seas that, despite their sad stories, have become part of the scenery and a tourist attraction. So, what shipwrecks can we see without getting wet?

Panagiotis
It is, of course, the most famous shipwreck in the country. The one every tourist, Greek or not, has to visit when they are on the island of Zakynthos. It’s not enough that this particular beach is incredibly impressive with the enormous vertical rocks and the turquoise waters, the shipwreck, many years ago, added an extra touch to the beautiful picture. The ship’s name is Panagiotis. It used to smuggle cigarettes from Turkey until, at one point in 1982, after a chase with the port authorities during a storm, it haphazardly run aground at the Aigiorgis beach that is now known as “To Navagio” (the shipwreck).
