All the nooks and crannies of Zante
Zante is a crazy island full of arches, caves, nooks and crannies... And, in 6 days of kayak, we explored them all!
One of the things that we'll never forget are the colours: we had never seen a sea as blue as this before... and all the colours were so incredibly bright that you may think that I altered the photos!
Zante is also famous worldwide for its shipwreck beach (so famous that if you search for "shipwreck beach" in google-image you get it immediately), but that beach is so crowed of people and boats that we ran away shocked as fast as we could.
Per un pugno di Basilico!

It will be very useful in a island were beaches are so rare like Zante. - - Cover||Brindisi, just before taking the ferry. - - Cover||The Albanian ferry is incredibly slow and we get to Zante at 5 pm, after 20 hours! We hurry to drive to the starting point, put the kayaks on the beach and pack everything in. At sunset we set out and at the dusk we finally land on this lovely beach: our first camp. - - Cover|

We won't circumnavigate the little island in front: a cave makes a gallery from one side the other! (The cave is not the big one on the left, it is the small one in the centre!) - - Cover|
