Discovery Albania, unexpected and low cost

You know by heart the Italian beaches and you think that Greece, Spain and Croatia are inflated? What is left for a holiday of relaxation and fun in the sea? If you've been stuck for ideas, here is the proposal suitable for you: the beaches of Albania, a great alternative for those who want to spend their holidays with the right balance between sun and culture. An original holiday, out of the norm and, above all, low cost, since the prices are still very low compared to those we are used to in Italy.

Still far from the traditional tourist circuits and frequented almost exclusively by the inhabitants of the country, the Albanian coast, overlooking the Adriatic Sea, offers a wide choice, from north to south The main destinations were represented by Durres, the main port and second largest city number of inhabitants of Albania, and Vlora and Saranda, in the south of the country, near the border with Greece. Along the Albanian coast you will discover customs and traditions still poorly understood and can take a journey through different cultures, from the North to the South Balkans, which are affected by the influence greek.



If you are not yet convinced that Albania can be your next destination, here's something else that might make you change your mind permanently. After a day of sand and sea, a few kilometers from the coast you will have the chance to discover the unspoiled and still not besieged by tourists, white sand, crystal clear water, and around small towns and villages where they could compete with a tradition so close geographically as far from our habits.
Nice to discover and above all low cost: the beaches Albanians, but also the rest of the country, they have a very low cost when compared to the prices at which we are accustomed to living in the Italian seaside resort. Wild places and an excellent quality / price ratio, now you do not really no more excuses!
Durres and beaches of the North


At the center of the homonymous Bay, Durres is the largest port in the country and is the main hub for those wishing to visit Albania. The city, the second in the country after the capital Tirana, is full of beaches, ideal for families and groups of friends looking for more adrenaline. If the area is ideal for children is made from the beaches of the city center, moving along the bay meet areas where nature is untouched beach Currila to the north, the beaches of The Golem and Mali Robit and the areas surrounding the Cape of Lagji, which closes the Bay of Durres, and where they meet and Bardhori Gjenerali different but both isolated and perfect to get away from the busy city. A one-week stay in high season, from late July to late August, including travel by plane or ferry and hotel with half-board, costs just over 700 euro.
Vlora, from Drymades to Dhermiu
Moving in the south of the country, the first resort you come to is the city of Vlora, which is also rich in beaches and a sea of ​​possibilities for those who decide to spend a holiday and low cost alternative. The most important natural areas in the area are all south of Vlore: worth visiting the small beach of Jal, sand and lapped by a crystal clear sea, the beach is surrounded by rock formations that make it charming. The other beaches in the area are not to be missed by those Drymades and Dhermiu: These are places frequented almost exclusively by the Albanians themselves, who spend their holidays and weekends away from the city. You should also visit the village of Dhermiu, inhabited mostly by elderly Greeks who rent their homes in the summer.
Saranda, the best of Albanian seaside
Saranda is the main tourist resort in Albania: is located in the south of the country, near the border with Greece, and the atmosphere is similar to that felt in the Greek islands, considering the proximity to Corfu, which is only 30 kilometers. In the area of ​​Saranda are perhaps the most beautiful beaches in the country but also the most crowded. The city, in fact, lives his moment of its busiest during the first half of August, when the city gets most of the tourists. Just move a little, however, to find the peace that we breathed a little further North and Sphella Lukove, but also Palasa and Ksamili are still intact and not mobbed by tourists. In these angles you can still breath a unique atmosphere, immersing himself in the traditions of the place. The prices in this part of the country are higher: a one-week stay, including travel and hotel accommodation with full board, up to 1,000 Euros.

Butrint and the Archaeological Park


Further south, not far from Saranda and at the limit of Albanian territory, is the town of Butrint, the sea, but also enriched by the presence of the Archaeological Park, under the protection of UNESCO and listed as World Heritage of 'Humanity in 1992. The story went through Butrint: founded in the sixth century BC by Corciresi, was considered a resort for Roman patricians. The city became part of the Byzantine Empire, came under the control of the Venetian Republic and, ultimately, was destroyed by the Turks in 1820. Over two thousand years of history, some of which contained the Archaeological Park, a great way to combine the sea and the entertainment, a cultural tour in a place not known. Prices for a tour including Saranda and the Archaeological Park of Butrint are around 900 euro, including travel and accommodation for a week in first class hotels with full board.Further south, not far from Saranda and at the limit of Albanian territory, is the town of Butrint, the sea, but also enriched by the presence of the Archaeological Park, under the protection of UNESCO and listed as World Heritage of 'Humanity in 1992.
