A popular summer destination for its inexpensive accommodation and stony Mediterranean beaches, Saranda has become a favorite of both Albanian and foreign travelers.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Kisha e Labovës së Kryqit and Sarande Museum. Gjirokaster Mosque and Agios Saranda will appeal to history buffs. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Saranda: Gjirokaster (Gjirokastra Bazaar, Gjirokaster, &more) and Blue Eye (in Vlore). The adventure continues: get outside with Tre Ishujt, step into the grandiose world of Lekuresi Castle, enjoy the sand and surf at Pulebardha Beach, and stroll through Butrint National Park.
