Smuggler’s Cove, Greece
On the Ionian island of Zakynthos, Smuggler’s Cove (or Navagio beach) was named after the shipwrecked vessel that lies on its golden sands. One visit to the northwestern shore and you’ll wish you could be marooned here for eternity, too. Accessible by boat, the postcard-worthy waterfront and aquamarine waves are sheltered by imposing limestone cliffs that make it feel like the last place on earth—so long as you beat the tourists and arrive in the early morning. But the beach appeals to more than just sunbathers: BASE jumpers are known to plunge some 650 feet from the rock surface into the crystal-clear surf.
