Best Cities To Visit In Southern Albania & Coast

1. Gjirokastra – One Of The Best Cities On My List

Things to Do On The Albanian Riviera - Gjirokastra Castle

Gjirokastra is known for its beautiful Ottoman architecture and excellent location among the snow-capped peaks of the South Albanian Drino Valley. Charming cobbled streets lead to the castle, the most essential part of the city, often called the “City of Stone.”

While visiting Gjirokastra, you will also want to see the Zekate House, an early 19th-century tower considered the best example of Ottoman architecture in the city. This beautiful and fascinating ancient city is easily one of the most beautiful places in Albania.

2. Albanian Riviera

Albanian Riviera Guide - Gjipe beach

The Albanian Riviera is, without question, one of the most popular tourist spots in Albania. The Riviera has a growing reputation as an important music center with numerous international music festivals, including Turtle Fest and Soundwave Albania.

Nightclubs such as Havana Beach Club near Dermis and Jale Beach’s Follie Marine attract young people from all over Europe to the Albanian Riviera.

The seaside town of Himara is one of the coolest up-and-coming places on the Riviera. The beaches of Llamani, Porto Palermo, and Filikuri are some of the most beautiful in the region. The beach of Drymades is one of the busiest and most fun in the Balkans. The Riviera definitely tops the list if you’re trying to figure out where to go in Albania for a beach vacation.

3. Pogradec

Pogradec in Albania: Ohrid Lake shore with some people and boats in the late summer

Located on the shore of Lake Ohrid in eastern Albania, Pogradec is one of the most promising places in the country and is well worth a visit.

Lake Ohrid is the deepest lake in the Balkans, and although the Macedonian part of the lake is more popular, the Albanian coastline is undoubtedly growing.

Pogradec is known for its rich folklore, and the Puppet Theater Festival is one of the most interesting events to take place in the country.

Shenk-Jablanica National Park is located about a 30-45-minute drive from Pogradec, near the fountains of Drilon.

4. Berat

Berat one of the places to visit in Albania

Berat is known as the “city of a thousand windows,” thanks to the typical Ottoman-style houses that Berat is famous for. Today, it is a UNESCO World Heritage Site with more than 2,000 years of packed history.

The ancient city of Berat is an absolute must-see in Albania. If you climb to the top of the castle, you will be treated to a fantastic view of the city of Berat. Inside the fortress walls, you will see houses where people still live their everyday lives.

Wine tasting is one of the best things to do, especially for vino lovers. Albania is home to a surprisingly good vineyard scene. You can visit the four best vineyards (Cabo, Nurellari, Malinati, and Luani) in a day and taste the best of local Albanian wine.

Also, you may visit Roshnik – a well-known village in the area of Berat, which is often called the cleanest and one of the most civilized villages.

If you are a budget traveler and love to connect with other travelers while backpacking, you should stay at Berat Backpackers, an excellent hostel in one of the most beautiful places in Albania; you can find rates and availabilities here.

5. Qeparo

Okay – confession – Upper Qeparo is magical and maybe my favorite place in Albania (and no, not just because of the donkey I saw). It is an ideal place to see a traditional Albanian village but with a quirk: the village was left half abandoned.

After the fall of communism, many people went abroad, and the village was completely deserted. About half of the village is renovated, but many old stone houses are still in ruins. The streets are touched with age, with beautiful views and a rich history surrounding them.

You might lack things to do, but that is the beauty of this quiet, authentic village.

6. Dhermi

Where To Go In Albania - Dhermi

With turquoise waters and beautiful secluded beaches, the beautiful landscape of Dhermi attracts young Albanians from all over the country in summer. Not only the beaches but also Dhermi is the epicenter of lively nightlife, another reason the young people flock here when school’s out.

The city is situated on a hill overlooking the sea and offers spectacular sunsets. Take a drink in one of the many bars and restaurants at sunset; it is always an excellent way to spend the neon evening in Dhermi.

Although this place offers a cheerful and festive atmosphere, with lively beach bars scattered throughout, there are more than enough beaches for a quiet place to sit and enjoy the Albanian Riviera landscape.

7. Theth National Park – Albanian Alps

8 Ideas For Biking And Hiking In Eastern Europe_Blue Eye of Theth

If you like to spend time outdoors, Theth is undoubtedly one of the best places in Albania and makes for a great Albania weekend getaway.

Nature lovers will enjoy the serene landscapes and charming villages that are still filled with authentic traditions, cuisine, and unique cultures.

Far away from the largest Albanian cities, tucked in the north of the country at the top of the Albanian Alps, Theth remains quiet and quaint most of the year.

The National Park in Theth is probably the most beautiful place in Albania, with Grunas Falls and the Lock-in Tower well-liked by tourists. If you’re planning a getaway in nature, Theth is one of the most beautiful places to visit in Albania for sure.

Mount Theti, Razma, Boga, and Vermoshi offer an unforgettable experience of Albania in its most natural state, experiences you certainly cannot miss. If you love the outdoors, Albania is one of the best places you can travel to in Europe.

8. Osumi Canyon – Kanionet e Osumit

Tucked away in the south of Albania, the Osumi Canyons offer an adventure like no other.

This natural wonder boasts soaring cliffs, emerald waters, and dramatic rock formations, making it a haven for nature enthusiasts and thrill-seekers. You can embark on a thrilling canyoning expedition, navigating through the canyon’s twists and turns.

Marvel at the sheer walls rising around you as you traverse the pristine waters. The Osumi Canyon is a hidden gem where you can connect with the raw beauty of Albania’s landscapes.

9. Lin

The picturesque village of Lin is located on a small peninsula on the western shore of Lake Ohrid. This beautiful lake separates Albania from neighboring North Macedonia and is an important region of study for the southeastern part of the country.

Lin, on the Albanian side of the lake, is a beautiful place, which is obviously its main attraction. It is a lovely village with many sandy and pebbly beaches, ideal for a picnic on a sunny afternoon or paddleboarding on the calm, beautiful waters of Ohrid.

10. Saranda

Best Hotels In Saranda, ALBANIA - beach

A coastal gem on the Ionian Sea, Saranda is a popular destination for sun and sea lovers. Its beautiful beaches, including Ksamil and Mirror Beach, offer a chance to relax and soak up the Mediterranean sun. Saranda is also a gateway to exploring ancient sites like Butrint and the mesmerizing Blue Eye.

The town’s vibrant waterfront promenade comes alive in the evenings, offering a taste of Albania’s lively nightlife.

Lekursi Castle is one of the best places in Saranda where people can go to enjoy breathtaking sunsets. Saranda is a short trip across the Ionian Sea and just an arm’s length away from the famous Greek island of Corfu.

11. Himare

Things To Do In Himare, Albania - Sunbathers on the beach in Himare resort, Albania.

Himare is a quieter coastal town a few hours north of Saranda. The views are breathtaking and ideal for resting on the beach for a few days.

The popular promenade has several good restaurants to try, and if you are looking for a calmer and cooler atmosphere than Saranda, it is one of the best places in Albania where you can relax. But for party animals, there are still plenty of restaurants and nightlife to keep the thirst for excitement alive.

12. Durres

Best Castles In Albania - Durrës Castle

Once the capital of Albania, Durres is located near Tirana, on the country’s coast. This is a very popular destination, meaning there can be gobs of people here spilling over from Tirana in the summer months.

With one of the largest ports of the Adriatic, the city is somewhat suffocated with development. However, there is a good stretch of beach where tourists and locals can enjoy many lovely beaches. And along the promenade, many restaurants offer delicious fresh seafood near the sand.

Over thousands of years, a war between Bulgarians, Greeks, Venetians, and Turks has made this city’s history as rich as its beaches. The impressive Roman amphitheater and the fantastic archaeological museum are among the biggest pulls to the town.

13. Mount Dajti National Park

Albania in Winter - View of the Dajti Express cable car and lake

For those seeking tranquility in the heart of nature, Mount Dajti National Park is a haven. Located in southern Albania, this park offers a serene escape with its lush forests, pristine lakes, and some of the best hiking trails in the Balkans.

Whether you’re an avid hiker or simply yearning for a peaceful retreat, you’ll find solace in the park’s natural beauty. Hike to the summit for panoramic views, explore the serene Liqeni i Dhëmbelit (Tooth Lake), or relish the peaceful ambiance away from the bustling world.

14. Ksamil

Things To Do In The Albanian Riviera - Ksamil Beach

South of Saranda, near the Greek border, is the beautiful seaside resort town of Ksamil, located in Butrint National Park. It has an impressive coastal location with many flocking to it.

Ksamil is one of the best beach towns in Europe and will make you feel as though you have just touched down at the beaches of the Caribbean. It is an escape in Europe like none other.

The village has bars and restaurants on the beach and four small coastal islands surrounded by crystal-clear waters, ideal for swimming and diving.

This is undoubtedly one of the last unknown treasures on the continent. Today, however, more and more tourists are finding Ksamil, and it is rapidly growing into one of the most popular destinations in Albania.

15. Vlore

One of the best beaches in Albania, featuring a majestic palm tree on its sandy shore.

In 1912, Albania declared independence in Vlore. Therefore, Vlore holds a special place in the hearts of us Albanians. That is why the Museum of Independence is located in this small town.

If you are a huge history buff looking to engulf yourself in Albanian history, you can go to the ancient Kanina Castle. According to local projections, the castle dates back to the 3rd Century B.C.

If you are interested in nature and the beautiful Albanian environment, you can visit the Bay of Vlora. You can enjoy the gentle sea breeze and simultaneously observe the bay’s fauna. There are many species of animals in the area, some of which you may not be familiar with or have ever imagined seeing in Europe.

16. Kruja

Balkan Cities - Kruja castle in Albania

On paper and in person, Kruja is an ideal small-town road trip destination. It is small enough to be seen in a short afternoon or evening with loads of local history and beautiful Albania scenery to go with it. Not to mention, it is less than an hour away from the country’s capital, Tirana.

Located just 20 miles northwest of Tirana, Kruja is a historic city at the foot of the impressive mountain by the same name. It is a small hillside town whose roads are as sloped as they are jagged from the worn cobblestone. You will have fun walking the streets for the afternoon and stopping at a cafe for a local fix.

The population is around 60,000, which is to be expected in the suburbs of Albania’s biggest city. As such, there is enough entertainment and things to do to occupy as long as you like; however, there is no need to spend more than a few hours if you prefer.

Kruja is the hometown of an Albanian hero, a man named Skanderbeg, whose memory isn’t lost in the hearts of the Albanian people. Visit the medieval castle, the site of a legendary battle won by Skanderbeg against the Ottoman Turks, and make a stop at the Skanderbeg Museum. You will surely be educated on Albania’s famous hero while visiting, making Kruja one of the top 10 things to do in Albania for history buffs, no question.

With such close proximity to Tirana, you would be much better off finding a place to sleep in the capital city.

Here are some of our favorites there:

Natural Wonders & Parks To See In Albania

17. The Blue Eye

Blue Eye Albania - Syri i Kalter or Blue Eye, a natural spring

Nature’s own masterpiece, the Blue Eye, is a mesmerizing natural spring in southern Albania. Its crystal-clear waters form a stunning pool that’s so clear you can see the depths below.

The vibrant blue hue of the water, surrounded by lush greenery, is truly a sight to behold. Whether you’re looking for a refreshing swim or a serene spot for a picnic, the Blue Eye offers a unique and refreshing experience.


18. Butrint National Park

Butrin - Things to Do In The Albanian Riviera

A UNESCO World Heritage Site, Butrint National Park is an archaeological wonderland that allows you to step back in time.

The ancient city of Butrint, nestled within the park, boasts Greek, Roman, Byzantine, and Venetian ruins, all shrouded in lush greenery. Wander through ancient theaters, temples, and fortifications as you uncover layers of history.

The Greeks lived in Butrint in the 6th Century B.C., and later, the Romans seized power. Butrint is one of the longest-inhabited cities in Europe. The first remains of life date back to 50,000 years ago! You can’t imagine the history this city holds.

What sets Butrint apart is its unique blend of nature and antiquity, with a backdrop of forests and wetlands that provide a haven for birdwatching and wildlife enthusiasts.

19. Korça

A brick building in Korca that is a must-see on your guided tour.

Known as the “City of Serenades,” Korca is a charming town in southeastern Albania that exudes a laid-back vibe.

It’s a great place to visit to explore Albania’s cultural heritage, with its traditional architecture, the country’s best museums, and lively local markets. Don’t miss the chance to savor the local cuisine and experience the warmth of Albanian hospitality.

Korca offers a glimpse into everyday life in Albania, away from the tourist crowds.


20. Bovilla Lake

A cloudy sky over Bovilla Lake one of the serene places to visit in Albania

Nestled in the hills surrounding Tirana, Bovilla Lake is a serene escape from the city’s hustle and bustle. It’s a popular spot for locals and visitors alike to unwind and enjoy nature. You can take a boat ride on the lake, have a leisurely picnic, or hike in the nearby hills for panoramic views. The tranquil atmosphere and natural beauty make Bovilla Lake a perfect day trip from Tirana.

Northern Albania

21. Shkoder

Best Castles In Albania - Old church in Rozafa castle ruins near Shkodra city

Located in the north of Albania, this picturesque city is one of Albania’s best destinations and a good starting point for fantastic road trips through the region. You will learn that Shkoder is a city of bicycles. Most locals you find, especially around the center, all ride bicycles as transport around town.

It is also an incredibly cheap place. If you are looking for a place in Albania where you get the best value for your money, look no further than Shkoder.

Travel back in time with the charm of Shkoder. The architecture is different from any other city in Albania. You might even feel like you are in an old-school film nearly a Century back in time.

If you were learning some simple phrases in Albanian, you might have difficulties conveying them in Shkoder. Southern Albanians speak a different dialect than northern Albanians, like in Shkoder.

22. Vuno

Vuno’s not on the tourist radar anymore, much less on the local radar. It is a tiny town along the route to the Albanian Riviera.

Vuno has the same charm as Upper Queparo, which I love so much. Traditional stone houses and cobblestoned roads pass through the village and lead to a beautiful view of the olive groves and beaches along the Albanian Riviera. However, Vuno was abandoned decades ago and is only slowly (very slowly) rebuilding.

Gjipe Beach is not far away, and it is nice to chill if you stay in Vuno for a few nights.

23. Apollonia

Where To Go In Albania - Temple ruins in Apollonia Albania

Apollonia is an ancient city that flourished during the Roman Empire. Today’s biggest draw to the town for you is all the well-preserved ancient buildings and remains inside the Apollonian Archaeological Park. It is a must-see for those who are into Roman architecture and the period.

24. Borsch

A sandy beach with umbrellas, a must-visit place.

One of the best places in Albania is Borscht. Borsch has the longest beach in Albania, making it one of the most noteworthy in the country. Situated among olive groves, it is a beautiful place to hide from the madness of Saranda in summer.

We highly suggest visiting Borsch Castle, which is located on the mountain overlooking the beach. The castle is in ruins but is still often completely forgotten by tourists. The view is breathtaking, and there is still a reason to visit it.

The castle also has an old mosque, which the Turks added. The mosque does not hold services because it is almost completely destroyed. However, its beautiful interior is still pretty much intact, and you can see some awe-inspiring paintings on the ceiling.

Things To See In Tirana & Surroundings

25. Et’hem Bey Mosque, Tirana

THINGS TO DO IN TIRANA, ALBANIA - Clock Tower and Mosque in the center, Tirana, Albania

The largest city in Albania, Tirana is home to Et’hem Bay Mosque, which demonstrates the beauty and friendliness of Islam. It is not a large mosque, but the Et’hem Bay mosque has a beautiful architectural structure. The dome’s interior has a complex image that will make your jaw drop. This mosque is not only a religious but also a historical symbol for Albania.

Apart from the mosque, Tirana is packed with sites such as Bunk’Art, Dajti Mountains National Park, the National History Museum, the National Art Gallery, Sheshi Skenderbej, and many other attractions.

Albania Travel Guide: What To Know Before You Go

The best part about Albania as a holiday destination is undoubtedly the unknown. Not everyone has weighed in on their experiences, but those who’ve been there know what it’s like. Those who haven’t can only guess.

Hopefully, the following information will allow you to paint a clearer picture of the best of Albania and where to go in Albania.

Transportation In And Around Albania

What To Wear In Albania_Sarande

Getting around Albania as a tourist is an adventure in itself, and honestly, it’s pretty straightforward once you get the hang of it. The country’s transport system offers a mix of modernity and a touch of the old school, giving you a real feel of the place.

First things first, buses and furgons (minibuses) are your best bet for getting from city to city. They’re affordable, reasonably reliable, and a great way to mingle with locals. Just be prepared for a lack of strict schedules; furgons, for example, tend to leave when they’re full. It’s part of the charm, really.

For those looking to explore more remote areas, renting a car might be the way to go. It gives you the freedom to discover Albania at your own pace, and while the roads can be a bit of a mixed bag in terms of quality, the stunning views you’ll encounter are worth every bump. Just make sure you’re comfortable with a bit of adventurous driving.

In cities, walking or grabbing a taxi for short distances is your best move. Taxis are relatively inexpensive, but it’s a good idea to agree on the fare before you start your journey to avoid any surprises. For the tech-savvy traveler, Albania does not have Uber or Lyft. Instead, you will need to use the local Speed Taxi App, which makes it easy to get around the urban areas.

And here’s a little tip: don’t hesitate to ask locals for directions or advice on getting around. Albanians are known for their hospitality and are usually more than happy to help a visitor out. So, whether you’re navigating the bustling streets of Tirana, exploring the historical sites, or soaking up the sun on the Albanian Riviera, getting around is all part of the experience.

Other Expenses In Albania

Hiking In The Balkans - Beautiful landscape of Accursed Mountains viewed from Valbona-Theth

Let’s break down the expenses you’re likely to face so you can enjoy your trip without any money woes. First off, accommodation prices can vary widely, from budget-friendly hostels to more luxurious hotels. Hostels are a steal, especially if you’re cool with sharing a room. For a bit more privacy, guesthouses or mid-range hotels are the way to go, and they won’t break the bank either.

Food is another area where you can either save or splurge. Street food and local eateries are your best friends if you’re looking to keep costs down. They offer delicious, authentic Albanian dishes at prices that are hard to beat. If you feel like treating yourself, there are also higher-end restaurants where you can indulge in gourmet meals at a fraction of what you’d pay back home.

Getting around is another consideration. Public transport, like buses and furgons (minibusses), is dirt cheap, but brace yourself for a lack of punctuality. Renting a car gives you the freedom to explore at your own pace, though fuel and rental fees add up. For city jaunts, taxis are convenient and reasonably priced; make sure to agree on the fare upfront.

Don’t forget about entrance fees for museums, historical sites, and natural parks. They’re usually not too steep, but they can add up if you’re hitting up multiple spots in a day. Lastly, set aside some cash for souvenirs and unexpected finds; Albanian markets are treasure troves of unique gifts and handmade crafts.

All in all, Albania is a budget-friendly destination, but like any trip, it’s the unplanned adventures that often become the most memorable (and sometimes the costliest).

Planning your trip to Albania between April and June or September and October is hitting the travel jackpot. These months offer that just-right weather: comfortably warm, tailor-made for outdoor jaunts without battling the summer blaze.

It’s best for hiking enthusiasts, offering paths through some of the most stunning landscapes you’ll ever tread – without the hassle of scorching heat or the unpredictability that comes with winter.

July and August, while they promise minimal rain and generous sunshine, crank up the heat, especially along the coast and within city confines. Yet, for the beach aficionados, it’s perhaps best to note the sea’s allure peaks towards summer’s end. The waters are invitingly warm, perfect for a dip, and the sands begin to whisper peace as the tourist buzz fades.

There is no wrong time to visit Albania, though; any time away from work you can get, you should visit this mesmerizing Balkan country.

  1. We recently visited my son, who lives in Albania. I followed a number of your recommendations & we had the trip of our lives. I’m planning my next trip back, and I want to thank you for promoting this beautiful country.

  2. We recently visited my son who moved to Albania a year ago. I followed your blog and included a number of your recommendations in our Albanian travels (the BEST was Lili at Homemade Food Lili in Berat. What an experience!). There are not many bloggers who include Albania in their travels.. I’m so thankful you did. What a beautiful country with the kindest, most hospitable people I’ve ever met in all my travels. Planning my next trip back soon.

  3. I would like to hire a car in tirana city and one way to sarande Any reputable albanian hire car in tirana please

  4. please, when you take the responsibility to advertise the tourism in Albania, you better learn the history properly. Everything you see in Albania speaks Albanian, neither roman nor greek. It requires deeper study to tell the world that Butrinti, and all historic sites of ALBANIA speak the history of ALBANIANS who were the ones to create other NATIONS. Descending by Pelasgians/Illyrians, the ALBANIAN people are the oldest in Balkan/ILLYRIAN Peninsula and their ALBANIAN Language is the base of all the other languages that our neighbours speak. The time will come when the world will learn that TROJ=LAND or T’ +ROJ= TO+LIVE= was the land inhabited by ALBANIAN speaking people and was the only EMPIRE before roman and byzant were introduced. The logic says that it should be 1 and then you can divide it by smaller 2 pieces. please don’t take credits of ALBANIAN history and give them to others before knowing the TRUTH- Before GOD you are very WRONG and so before us, ALBANIANS-thanks
