Just south of Saranda is the unofficial capital of the Albanian Riviera. Ksamil is often the first and most exciting day excursion.
The beaches here are some of the only sandy beaches in the country and there are generally less people there.
Many of the beaches are privately owned and charge a small admissions fee but it’s the perfect spot for those looking to be centrally located.
There are three small islands just off shore and make for a fantastic boat ride or swim through brilliant turquoise waters.
This is the place that many Albanians come to during the summer months.
And just across the channel is Corfu, the nearest Greek Island to Albania.
