Here we present a selection of the best beaches in the Saranda region.

They are different in many ways and the biggest difference is maybe that some of them are quite crowded in high season and some of them are not crowded at all, not even in high season.

They are definitely also worth a visit in oktober/november even though the restaurant is close at that time, you can go and be totally lonely. Sometimes the water temperatur is higher than 20 degrees celsius even then!

Visit one of them, some of them or all of them - and enjoy!!!

1. Ksamil Beach

Beach is located near the village Ksamil. It is a long beach with beautiful white sand.

3. Pasqyra - Mirror beach

Mirror beach is a beautiful and surprisingly unknown beach situated just 9 km from Saranda next to the coast way to Ksamil. It is called Pasqyra beach in Albanian. The car drive to the beach is tricky; because the road goes down steep cliffs. But once on the beach, you'll think it is worth it. You will find fine sand and clear water. When the tide is high you can swim to the right and find another part of the beach. When the tide is low you can walk there. Or you can stay on the main side, and rent a sun chair and a sun umbrella. There is also a nice restaurant, which serves traditional Albanian food, drinks and ice cream. A splendid destination on a sunny day!
