The Spot:
Zakynthos in the Ionian Islands, Greece

The Moment: This beach on the Island of Zakynthos, part of the Ionian Islands off of the west coast of Greece, is one of the most photographed locations in the world. We didn't believe that the colors would be anything like the photos we had seen, but were we very wrong.   
 
Taking this photo was quite literally a cliff hanger. Imagine standing out over a ledge that is at least 500 feet (152 meters) up from the sea. Now, imagine that the platform you are standing on is only the size of a standard kitchen table top. It was worth it all, though, to get this shot.
  
Do-It-Yourself:
Find your way to London and then consider Kosmar Holidays (www.kosmar.co.uk), a company that provides packaged vacations to Greece and Turkey. We stayed at the Letsos Hotel (www.letsos-hotel.com/en_hotel.php), just two minutes from an outstanding sandy beach.
