The beach of Navagio (Zakynthos) opens for the season with Additonal Rules

The efforts of the local authorities, the operators and the entrepreneurs have been fruitful and the Navajo Beach is now open. Last Friday, the decision of the Harbor Master of Zakynthos, Athanasios Sioutis, was set up in “Diagyia”, which sets out how to approach, moor and take a sea bath in the bay. Typically, only the publication of this decision remains in the Government Gazette, in order to get a good end to the case.

We would like to remind you that on Friday, May 24th, a meeting was held with the initiative of the Harbormaster, which included representatives of the local authorities and bodies (Region, Municipality, NMPH, Chamber), as well as the owners of tourist boats and daydreaders who were invited to discuss the approach and anchoring the floating means and swimming in the bay of the Navajo. At the meeting, it was decided that the Municipality should send a letter to the Port Authority informing them about the completion of security measures on the beach. When the Port Authority received the relevant document, it proceeded to postpone the decision to “Clearance”.
