Smugglers Cove: Shipwreck

Zante’s most famous landmark must certainly be the shipwreck at Smuggler’s Cove. Surrounded by 100m high cliffs there are many theories surrounded the ship about how it ended up in the cove. Allegedly wrecked in 1982 carrying contraband cigarettes, there are locals who suggest that the Greek Ministry of Tourism placed it there. However unlikely all the stories seem, the shipwreck retains the sightseeing number one position, on the island.
