Please note...

If your private tour inc the Shipwreck Beach, Shipwreck platform or the Saint Georgos Monastery:

• The time we are allowed to spend in the Shipwreck bay area will depend on weather conditions and compliance with local by laws.

• As the season moves to the autumn months the sun's rays will take longer to reach the Shipwreck beach.

• The time we are allowed to spend at the Shipwreck platform area will depend on weather conditions and compliance with local by laws.

• There is a gentle slope to the monastery and steps to the Shipwreck platform and in the taverna.

• Please think about respectful clothing for the monastery, just a sarong for the lady is okay.

Important information

• Please note that the latest announcement according to official Greek law prohibits us from landing on Shipwreck beach from 2023. This decision was made following the landslide in 2018 in combination with the large number of visitors expected on our island this summer season. Although we cannot land on the beach, we are allowed to sail into the bay and take photos a short distance from the beautiful, empty beach! This will definitely create a wow feeling of the mesmerizing spectacle of Mother Nature at her best.  In the last four years we have been in the same situation twice and have successfully adapted our tour program accordingly. Our alternative program includes cruising the bay to take beautiful photos of an empty shipwreck beach, a swimming stop at another beautiful bay on the west side of Zakynthos and extra time at the magnificent Blue Caves. The customized program offered has always been met with great pleasure and satisfied feedback from our guests and many even saw the view of an empty beach as a bonus!

• If we enter the shipwreck beach before the crowds arrive (note: early in the morning the beach will still have little sun), you will have the opportunity to take pictures of a beautiful, empty (!) beach with few to no other boats around you.

    FANTASTIC DAY WITH EXCELLENT CREW!!
    My wife and I spent a day with Nikos and Arris on a private speedboat trip to shipwreck beach and the blue cave. We set off just after 8am which in hindsight proved to be a brilliant idea as we were one of the first boats at the beach and we counted just 12 of us on the beach. As we were heading to the blue cave you could see a huge number of boats heading to the beach, easily around a thousand people. So we were very lucky. We also had a few good swim stop in hidden locations which were great along with a delicious lunch in a family run seaside taverna. This was a fantastic day out and both the guide and skipper were a lot of fun and made us laugh all the way there and back. We also got to see a turtle as a bonus for the day. I would happily recommend Nefis Travel, Mariska who arranged the tour was friendly and very efficient, the speed boat we were on had a much bigger engine than other boats and so that really helped us to be one of the first at the shipwreck beach

    Great tour company with excellent service and friendly atmosphere. It’s like “belonging” to a family! Whatever the tour whether by cruise or coach I am sure you’ll enjoy both! They really “reach” out to you and take care that you remain happy throughout the day! No overtiring activities, everything is just “right”! Their stops and visits are chosen with extreme care so that you’ll enjoy them. This company does not follow bulk tourist destinations. Tourism at its best!

    Mariska organised for us at very late notice a wonderful tour of Zakynthos Island which included an exclusive trip around the island by air conditioned tourer and an exclusive trip by speedboat.
    Takis was our tour guide for the day and he was absolutely fantastic. He was friendly, and very passionate about showing off the island he lived on. He picked us up from our suite at 08:00am and we drove to Agios Nikolaos harbour visiting several locations on the way. Our boat was waiting for us and our skipper for the day Tassos was just great.
    We sped off to Shipwreck Bay so we could miss all the other tourists, when we got to the shipwreck there was just the two of us on the beach, it was great it really was. We then got back onto the boat and went back around the coast at a more leisurely pace to take in the scenery and visit to the Blue Caves and a swim in the ultra-blue water. All again just two of us, which made the trip fantastic.
    The boat dropped us off back at Agios Nikolaos harbour and we then stopped off for coffee before continuing our tour by car. Takis took us everywhere, sightseeing, lunch, local markets, olive factory and much more and during the drive Takis was constantly stopping to explain history, or even just to tell us a funny story.
    We drove down to Laganas bay where the boat picked us up again and we went out to see turtles, unbelievable! We then took in some more coastline before finishing off with a cold beer.
    Takis then took us back to the suite at about 18:30pm after the most amazing day. We then back to our apartment exhausted but so glad that we had booked the tour. Later that evening at dinner the hotel manager came up to us with an envelope! It was from Takis. He came back to the suite later that evening to drop off a memory card with all the days photos on! What a lovely man he was.
    The next day walking through Tsilivi Takis rode passed us on his bike! He stopped and shook my hand and gave my partner a hug and asked if we got the photos OK? Just a really genuine nice guy.
    I can’t thank Nefis enough for a lovely day, and my thanks to Takis for being, well being him!

If you are staying in Planos – Tsilivi, we then kindly ask to pick up your tickets in one of the 2 Nefis Travel offices close to your accommodation. For guests staying on a far distance, a payment in advance will be requested.

Do you have group discounts?

We can indeed look into a tailor-made discount for groups.

What happens if the sea conditions are not okay for a tour?

We at Nefis Travel provide the highest level of customer service given on the island. If the weather reports are bad, we will cancel the tours and give you a refund.
If the weather shows a 50-50 situation, we will phone you on your mobiles or at the hotels before the tour starts and tell you that we might have to use an alternative program. This only happens on the Shipwreck and Blue Caves tours. The east coast of the island as in Blue Caves and Xingia Sea Spa and the west coast as in Shipwreck beach is possible to have 2 totally different sea conditions.
Our captains will check the situation early in the morning and if we see that the Blue Caves and Xingia Spa, east coast are okay but around cape Skinari on our way to the west coast, the sea doesn’t allow us to go to the Shipwreck beach, we will create Plan B:
Plan B: We will go to the Shipwreck platform by bus so you'll see the Shipwreck from above and we will offer extra time at the Blue Caves for pictures and swimming, and go to the Xingia Sea Spa after our lunch stop. We will tell you honestly what the situation is and leave the choice to you. You can swap your trip around and go on another day, take a refund or decide to come.
From our experience those who came on these few rare days that this happens in the summer, still had a great day out. And as we said it is a 50-50 situation sometimes the wind drops, while we drive to the harbor and we can still sail to the Shipwreck beach. We at Nefis Travel just want to be as straight forward about as we can be and will always be honest about the weather conditions.
