a must see park with beautiful vivid colors surrounded by water, with an underground freshwater spring that, even though its freezing cold, creates long diving queues there is still no exact estimation on how deep the eye is, but divers have only reached 50 m.

i want you to go here during the day or as twilight is starting because the views from up here are breathtaking. with 360 degree view (like every decent castle has, here in Albania) you can see the ever growing Saranda town, the island of Corfu, Butrinti lake, the Riviera coastline and on the other side: the fields, rivers and majestic mountains ( or as my guest from NZ called them " small hills") its always windy so you won't feel hot but don't forget your sunscreen. during nigh time here you will find a display of Albanian culture and traditions starting from the food, souvenirs and the Polyphonic Musical Group

beaches i like
one of my favourite beaches. it has clear waters (like most of our beaches) you can choose to sit in a sandy area or in a gravely area. It also has an area where is public, so you can put your own umbrella the road to get there is unpaved if you have a car but this has never discouraged anybody.

its raw Albanian Riviera at its best. there are round smooth pebbles everywhere, the water is crystal clear, even underwater you walk on a smooth surface of a big stony plaques and it looks like sand. the view from the top restaurant is amazing and the food is great. the road to get there is not paved, it looks like you'd be going on a jungle adventure for a few minutes. and from there you descend to the beach via stairs.

long sandy and gravely beach on one side and behind you fields and hills filled with olive trees. the water is clear and deep. there is a certain feeling you get when you go in the water here and i just can't explain it, you have to see for yourself. there are many restaurants there but i don't recommend any of them.

this beach is located in one of the bays of Lukove village, the road to get there is difficult not suited for every vehicle. for this reason it is not crowded and absolutely perfect. this is a sandy beach, surrounded by a forest of olive trees which make it 10 times more beautiful.

perfect place for families with small children and toddlers who like to play in the sand. this beach has shallow waters with a soft sandy bed. surrounded by trees behind you and a beautiful view of Corfu Island. it is a several minute drive away from ksamil centre and it is a quite popular destination

this is a beautiful beach away from the crowds . it is a 40 minute picturesque drive from Sarande, the road to the beach gets difficult after you leave the main road but it is all worth it. the food is also good and so are the prices.

The Same bus can also take you to Butrint but you must ask the driver or ticket guy for confirmation. Have a safe trip !

Boat rides to virgin beaches you can’t drive to

Along the promenade and near Limani restaurant there are big wooden boats and small boats that take you on a tour to 3 or 4 different beaches. You enjoy each of them for about an hour. Some offer food some don’t. However bring your own food and beverage because once you are in Krorez you will stay there until 4 or 5 pm . The boats usually depart at 8 or 9 or earlier and they usually cost about 25€ per person
