The albanian riviera

Albanian Riviera traditionally runs along the Ionian coast of Albania under the Ceraunian Mountains in the District of Sarandë and the District of Vlorë. The region includes the cities of Saranda and Vlora, and the villages of Borsh, Himara, Qeparo, Ksamil and others. Although technically the Ionian Sea begins further south at the Vivari Channel near Butrint, the area is attributed to the Ionian Sea. The region contains a number of castles and Orthodox churches. The landscape alternates between mountain passes, steep cliffs, crystal clear beaches, small caves, and olive plantation fields. In 48 BCE, Julius Caesar during his pursuit of Pompey set foot and rested his legion at Palase on the Albanian Riviera.

Landmarks


There exist many tourist facilities along the coast. These are mainly small complexes of wooden cabins, local bed and breakfasts, beach clubs, camping facilities, and a few beach resorts. The rest of the coast is mostly unspoiled. Owners of these facilities organize tours in the surrounding area and along the coast as part of their accommodation packages, including visits to cultural sites, sailing, kayaking, and underwater diving.

Below are some historical and natural landmarks:
Ali Pasha Castle
Borshi Castle
Kaninë Castle
Lëkurësi Castle
Porto Palermo Castle
Castle of Gjon Boçari
Ceraunian Mountains
Ksamil Islands



This thread will cover almost all parts of the albanian riviera , which has some of the most beautiful beaches in europe .

Amazing photos! The beaches look great! It's nice to see that the coastline is not overdeveloped, unlike many other places around Europe. The terrain has a wonderful natural beauty about it.
