Cool base jump venue....shipwreck beach in Zakynthos, Greece

By

Pretty cool back story….”Navagio beach is an exposed, isolated cove, located on the northwest shore of Zakynthos island and took its name from a smuggler shipwreck that was washed on shore in 1981, due to an engine malfunction and bad weather conditions. The small beach has amazing, white, soft sand and crystal clear waters and is defined by huge vertical limestone cliffs.

In this extraordinary scenery that attracts thousands of visitors every summer, BASE jumpers have found their own paradise. The jump off point is situated on the edge of a high cliff that overlooks the bay at 656 ft/200 m height and can be approached by car. Once you jump, you have about 2 to 5 seconds before you deploy your parachute and land safely on the sandy beach. The views and the excitement of the fall will definitely take your breath away, while free falling in this exotic spot.”

The above video was published yesterday…here is another video with multiple jumps from different angles from last year.
