Popular Zakynthos beach to remain closed this summer due to landslide risk

Authorities on the Ionian island of Zakynthos have decided to keep Navagio beach, a popular tourist destination famous for its signature shipwreck, closed to tourists this summer, for fear of landslides.
The decision to prohibit access to the Navagio beach was recommended by a team of experts from the Anti-Seismic Planning and Protection Organization (OASP), following a visit to the site on March 8, as part of a regular reassessment of its safety.
The OASP team said there was significant risk of landslides due to the erosion of the surrounding cliffs.
