Tourists flee as cliff face falls on to holiday beach

Tourists enjoyed ‘Shipwreck Beach’ in 2017

A landslide at a beach on the Greek tourist island of Zakynthos has been caught on camera.

It is one of the Ionian island's main attractions, in part because of the shipwreck on the shore and also because of its surrounding steep cliffs.

The landslide occurred Thursday on the Navagio Beach, or Shipwreck Beach, on the northwestern coast of the island. Their injuries were not life-threatening, though a 37-year-old Czech tourist did sustain a spinal injury that will be checked by a specialist in Patra in western Greece.

The video included below shows the moment the rock broke away from the cliff face, with what was described as some as being an "almighty cracking sound". She was hospitalised together with her husband and two children, who suffered minor injuries.

"There was a rumble and a rock fell, followed by a larger rock and then another".

"The water hit my feet with such force that it knocked me on to my back and covered over half of the beach".

Greek news outlet Nooz said early reports that said three people were injured and others were missing were inaccurate.

Rescue services with sniffer dogs are searching the beach for possible victims.

He said: "The rock that fell would be like a four-storey building falling on to the beach".

The coast guard said later that those who had headed to the beach on tourist boats had all been accounted for.
