Coastal Beaches

The Albanian coast offers visitors an escape to calm, quiet waters as almost the entire coast is sheltered from winds, making it a paradise for swimmers. The coast stretches for about 450 km with very clean waters and many untouched uninhabited beaches.

The Albaninan coast offers two district zones: the Adriatic and Ionina Seas. Beaches on the northern Adriatic coast ar shallow and excellent for children and family vacations. Much of the coastline is composed of pine forests and several lagoons offering great potential for ecotourism and nature lovers. The southern Ionian coastline is dramatically rugged with steep backdrops to fine smooth gravel beaches. It is generally frequented by the younger generations and honeymooners and offers many opportunities for water activities and diving as well.
