The shorelines in Albania, a stretch of land from Shkodra to Ksamil, is a standout amongst the most lovely places to visit in Europe. With its immaculate shorelines, old villages, and lovely vistas, this part of Albania is an absolute must-see destination along the Balkan trail. Here’s my list of the 8 most stunning beaches of Albania (Land of the Eagles):

8. Cape of Rodon, a great adventure in the Adriatic Sea

2 & 1. Grama bay and Shën Andre Bay – the heaven on Earth

Grama Bay and Shën Andre Bay are on top of the most beautiful outdoor destinations I’ve ever seen. Located in an unexplored part of Albania, the Bays remain to be virgin. Hiking from Palasë to Shen Andre first, and then to Grama Bay, is one of the most beautiful hikes in southern Albania.

Shen Andre Bay Albania

The photo above is from Shën Andre Bay. This Bay is exceptionally astounding with its uncommon sand and its water. The water is spotless and has an extraordinary shading. Here you will have the chance to appreciate the sun and the find in this perfect corner of the coast.

After arriving at the Shën Andre Bay, there is around 4.5 km left to the Grama Bay. The trail runs parallel with the sea as well, and it is extremely wonderful. You will take after the way, to the point that you land to an old military station which was utilized amid the communist time. From that point, you can appreciate the most delightful perspective of this hike, the perspective of the Grama Bay. It is an immaculate shoreline in an extraordinary environment, where you can appreciate the nature or bathe in the perfectly clear seawater. Check it:
