“One of the most beautiful natural things I've seen”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2013

You just have to go there on a non-busy day, I suppose it can get crowded and therefore less peaceful.

“The Blue Eye”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013

This is a magical spot right by the water. It is reached down a narrow road at the end of which tere are at least two eating places. The Blue Eye is in the water- you walk along a river bank and across a bridge and watch the water bubble and the intense colour in the midst of the stream.. Lovely- don't miss this.

“Blue Eye”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2013

I have visited this place several times , I like the freshness and coolness that the forest around offers to you ...and the silence ,you can just listen to the calming sound of the water stream and relax. You can also swim or dive if you are enough brave to do it though :P (the water maintains an average temperature of 10 degrees centigrade ).

“Beautiful, peaceful place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2013

Visited this place in mid-September 2013 on a day trip from Corfu. It is a lovely, unspoiled place with turquoise blue waters in the middle of a wooded area. Very peaceful and relaxing.

The water is so clean and pure that you can drink it safely. I am rather surprised that Albania have not yet started to sell this mineral / spring water as it would be a valuable source of revenue for this country. (Perhaps the problem is how to do this without an impact on the natural beauty of this place.)
