Obviously, shipwrecks represent a tragedy, the loss of life or property or both. But shipwrecks can also be dazzlingly beautiful, adding character and history to otherwise unbroken natural vistas. As far as discarded junk goes, you really can't beat the ruins of ships for pure atmosphere. All across the world, the rotting remains of boats that were forgotten due to accident or obsolescence still sit like glimpse into our own future downfall.

As though a secluded cove beach on a tiny Greek island were not magical enough, Zakynthos Island's Navagio Beach also holds the rusting wreckage of a smuggler's ship. In 1983 the ship known as the Panagiotis was carrying contraband loads of cigarettes, booze, and according to some reports, humans. The authorities caught wind of the illicit cargo and tracked down the ship while it was still at sea. The Panagiotis fled, but the weather was poor and in their haste, they ran the ship aground into what is now sometimes called, "Smuggler's Cove." Today the wreck is still there, the only mar on the otherwise pristine beach. Although surprisingly it makes it all the more attractive.
