How to get to Smugglers Cove

Looking at a photo online is a lot different than going to take it. Most of the images you see on my portfolio or on my Instagram have a crazy story behind it. This  is why I fell in love with photography.

Let me tell you what it took to get these shots. First I took a 16-hour  ride to Istanbul from Miami. From there, I jumped on a plane to Athens, that was a quick 2-hour flight. From , I rented a car and headed to Port Killini, that took 6 hours but I got pulled over and got a pricey speeding ticket, add one more hour to the trip.

From Port Killini, I took a ferry to the island of Zakynthos that took about 1.5 hours. Upon my arrival at the port of Zakynthos, I had to pee really bad, so I stopped and used the bathroom. After my much-needed pee break, I purchased a Coke from a local store so I wouldn’t fall asleep. I started driving to Navagio, that was about 1.5 hours, at this point I am extremely tired but trying to make it for sunset. After driving for a while I notice that the road is coming to an end. I pulled over, jumped out of the car and hiked for about 30 minutes with all my gear.

Finally, I laid eyes on this incredible place and watched the sunset over the Ionian Sea. A must on anyone’s bucket list. It is a far travel for me, however, when you see the shipwreck beach in Greece with your own eyes, it makes it all worth it. I am not sure if there is a faster way to get there, however, I am ok with the long way. Making all those memories and taking loads of photos along the way is the icing on the cake.
