Albanian Riviera dubbed by some as “the last secret of Europe”, boasts stunning Mediterranean beaches of the Ionian coast. Geographically, it’s a 120km stretch of coastline between Vlore and Sarande in the south-west Albania. This part of the coastline is regarded as the most beautiful in this country and it should not be confused with the rest of the Albania’s Adriatic coast.
In any other country, it would have been completely built up by high-rising hotels, but due to previous communism rule, the coast of Albanian Riviera is still relatively not spooling by tourist industry, with many empty and deserted beaches and hidden rocky coves.
This feature alone would make it a perfect holiday destination for those who’d like to experience something new and extraordinary in this part of Europe. Despite its “freshness”, the Albanian Riviera has a lot to offer many different types of visitors. For example, those interested in archaeology would find the ancient city of Butrint very exciting. The site richly deserves its status as the country’s best known archaeological site, but there are many other fascinating ancients remains.
Outdoor lovers would be happy just about anywhere along the coast. Apart from obvious water related activities, the mountains of the Riviera offer fantastic hiking and cycling opportunities for those with more time at their disposal.
The Albanian Riviera offers beautiful beaches with clear turquoise water, which remain still not crowdie.
You will be amazed from the coastline that begins from north with Adriatic sea and ends in south with Ionian sea. Adriatic sea has sandy beach from Velipoja until Vlora and from “Uji I ftohte” in Vlora, that is translated cold water until Ksamil, the Ionian sea has stony beaches with wonderful water color.
