Vlorë - Sarandë, Albania Oh, my God, I feel dizzy.
Yes a bit for sure... I have seen worse but this one is dangerous for sure, if you drive safety it's fine but if you want to take this road better take it by day.

I'm not sure if it's worth the detour.



It's not dangerous at all, but it's very curvy between Vlora and Saranda like a typical coastal road as you can see on the video. It's a bit comparable to the Jadranska Magistrala in Montenegro, but more curves and steeper grades. But it's very beautiful! Between Saranda and Igoumenitsa (and vice versa), it's sometimes hard to find the right road because signing isn't the favourite thing of Albanians and Greeks

If you want to drive fast and safe, choose the other option you made that screenshot of. Perhaps the costal road it's an alternative for your back journey?
3 euros, not a big deal. Thanks.

I hate roads with many curves and deep canyons like Podgorica - Kolašin, or Cetinje - Budva.
Maybe we do to Ksamil for two days when we come back, I like it very much. The best place in Albania. Butrint is very interesting, too.
There is a strange ferry. ))

Then don't drive on the costal road and take the one over Tepelena. That's easy terrain!

You are right. It's better option for me.
