The most famous landmark of the island is the Navagio beach. It is a cove on the northwest shore, isolated by high cliffs and accessible only by boat.

 

The beach and sea floor are made of white pebbles, and surrounded by turquoise waters.

It is named after a shipwreck (MV Panagiotis), which sunk on the shore around 1980.

Numerous natural "Blue Caves", are cut into cliffs around Cape Skinari, and accessible only by small boats.

 

Sunrays reflect through blue sea water from white stones of cave bottoms and walls, creating visual lighting effects. 

 

Keri is located in the far south of the island. It is a mountain village and has a lighthouse in the south. It includes a panorama of the southern part of the Ionian sea. The whole western shore from Keri to Skinari contains numerous interesting rock formations including arches.
