Dangerous acts by tourist still continue at shipwreck cove!

Late yesterday afternoon a photograph was doing its rounds on the popoular Social Media page Facebook.

As you can see in the picture it shows a person climbing up the mast of the shipwreck.

The act has put the local community into shock and disbelief and are calling for immediate action. As  most of us know these types of dare devil acts have caused problems for Zakynthos in the past. On a couple of occassions the acts of tourists who do not think of the consequences has led to death.

As the “shipewreck” known to locals as the “Navagio” is a top destination. When the death occurred, it certainly made world headlines.

Zakynthos was and will be put under scrutiny again if this person was injured in any form.  Local reporter George Gogos stated the madness on his personal page.  The above translated, caused people to comment.

“The other went climbing on the shipwreck!

If she fell and lost her life, everyone else would be blamed except for her little bitty brain!

Unfortunately, the mortar of the few does not allow any measure to protect both visitors and Zakynthos from defamation!

PS: The photo is from the wall of a friend Ioanna Giannoula.

We will remind you that recently, Zakynthos Informer reported that our authorities are making proposals. Proposals for shipwreck cove.

We also have done reports on how dangers some tourists are acting. Safety at Shipwreck cove 

However, it seems that actions from these proposals should take place and now! Before, we see the worst once again.
