Tourists at Greek island of Zakynthos injured after cliff collapses on beach

Relieved Sharon Gifford leaving the beach after the landslide

Three people including at least one tourist were hurt Thursday following a landslide at Navagio beach on the island of Zante, one of Greece's most popular travel destinations, state agency ANA said.

Their injuries were not life-threatening, fire brigade and coast guard officials said. The rock was so large, it caused a small tsunami, with large waves crashing onto the beach.

British holidaymakers have described scenes "like Dunkirk" after tons of rock fell from a cliff face onto a packed tourist beach on the Greek island of Zante. Her husband and two children were also treated for minor injuries by hospital staff, according to the Greek news website Kathimerini.

Among those injured was a 34-year-old woman from the Czech Republic, who suffered a fractured vertebra. He believed more were coming, so he started running.

While now, no one is missing, the coastguard called in helicopters and boats to search the area, in case anyone was trapped under the rocks.

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

"So far, we haven't found any trapped people but we will continue searching", a fire brigade official said. (Supplied) Small boats at the beach were capsized as a result of the fall sparking big waves. The spot is popular with tourists and locals, who get to the cove either on small tourist or private boats.
