Five favorite beaches in Albania for 2020

Many friends and acquaintances have asked me about the beaches of Albania. Which beaches are worth visiting in Albania? How to get there? Is it safe? etc. The albanian coast is really beautiful, there are two kinds of beaches in Albania: sandy beaches, those along the Adriatic sea, and the rocky beaches along the Ionian sea in the southern part of Albania. The locals prefer very much the southern seaside especially the beaches of Vlora, Saranda and Ksamil. I have visited some of them and these are the five favorite beaches for now which will be updated through time of’ course.

  1. Kep Merli, Ksamil

Kep Merli is a private residential resort in Ksamil with a small beautiful beach. In front of the beach is the greek island Corfu. A prior reservation is needed to enter the resort.

2. Palasa beach

Palasa beach is egzotic. The colour of the sea is blue and turquoise from the white little stones of the beach. The high greyish mountains of Llogara give a very exotic and authentic look to Palasa.

3. Dhermiu beaches

Dhermiu village boasts some of the most famous beaches in Albania. The beach of Gjipe and Jaliksari will enchant you.

4. Bora bora beach, Ksamil

Bora bora beach is just one of the many beautiful beaches in Ksamil. In front of the beach are two small islands, which may be visited by a boat. Nearby the beach is a very nice restaurant called House of Mussels which you should not miss it.

5. Beaches at the Cape of Rodoni

Cape of Rodoni is only one hour drive from Tirana. It is an authentic and historical site. There are three famous beach resorts there, Rera e bardhe beach resort, Arbeni beach resort and the beach next to the medivial church of st. Anthony.
