Navagio is one of the island's main attractions with its crystal blue waters and a shipwreck on the shore.

Seven people were injured, with one woman suffering back injuries.

The brief video clips included below show the moment the rockfall began, with tons of rock breaking away from the cliff face and falling onto the crowded beach in Zante. She was hospitalised together with her husband and two children, who suffered minor injuries.

Small boats are capsized after a landslide occurred at the popular beach of Navagio, or Shipwreck Beach, on the western island of Zakynthos, Greece, Thursday, Sept. 13, 2018.

O'Connell described the piece of rock that fell as being as big as a four-storey building, crashing down onto the beach.

The rock's weight drove waves on to the crowded beach, Mr O'Connell said, as families scrambled to safety. He believed more were coming, so he started running.

"We haven't found any trapped people but we will continue searching", a spokesperson for the fire brigade said.

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.

British woman Wendy Thorpe said she was on a boat with her daughter when the cliff collapsed and there was an "almighty crash".

Authorities shut down access to the beach, which lies at the foot of a 200-metre (650-foot) cliff and is accessible only by boat, as a precaution.
