It's very difficult to find so much natural beauty in a small area of territory and that's the case with Albania, it has a favorable geographic location.
Some more beach photos, these ones are from the southern Dhrmiu Beach

The Famous Blue Eye
25 km away from Saranda town, near the traditional impressive stone built village of Musina, into a forest of hazelnuts, walnuts, cherries, pines and fir trees, 177 meters above the sea level, 18 springs come together out of the bottom of the earth and a rare beauty forms, the famous "Blue Eye", which is a geological phenomenon.



Because of its oval shaped form and of the water, which is coming out of the earth, deep blue in the center and the light blue at the sides it looks like a human eye. Nobody knows how deep it is. Divers who tried to reach the bottom because of the pressure of the water have managed to go only 45 meters deep. It has a rate of flow of 6 cubic meters of water per second and a water temperature of 13 Celsius degrees. Visitors throw a stone into the center of this spring, and after a while they see the same stone coming up again on the surface of it. This geological phenomenon is of tectonic origin. Its water is believed to be a filtration from Drinos valley. These 18 springs provide water to "Bistrica" river which is 25 km long and by an artificial channel built in 1958, its waters flow into the Ionian Sea.

In the area of the "Blue Eye" wild life is rich and varied too, wild animals exist, like the fox, the fowl, the reptiles and the marten. "Blue Eye" is Albania's small treasure. Visitors on a one-day organized trip can relax into its peaceful landscape. Next to a picturesque waterfall opposite the "Blue Eye" spring, there is a traditional wood and stone built restaurant you may enjoy Albania's snaps named "Raki".

Hi man. Albania is wonderful!! I was there last summer, and it was legendary But due the photos it's better to go there during spring, I think. We had extremely hot weather and quite dry mountains. Can I ask you where are these photos from??

We were only on North albanian alps (prokletije mts.) near Theti and so on...
And where is this great waterfall??

We only met some smaller

Thanks Vlker.
The pic on that waterfall you took is from the Grunas Waterfall. And the other pic you asked the question is from Erzen River.
I'm glad you visited Theth, it's a gem in Northwestern Albania. Here's another photo of River Theth:



From the mountain photos you posted, i dont know where the first pic was taken. The second however was taken in the Mountain of Paplluga.
