I really enjoyed visiting Blue Eye in Saranda. It is an amazing attraction for those who are nature lovers. The water there is so clear and cold. It is called like that because it looks just like a blue eye.

Stunning
Nov 2020
You need to drive down a very bumpy dirt road to get to this location, so be sure to have the right car. The water is stunning, just as bright and clear as the photos. There was only one other couple there when we went. Swimming is allowed. Awesome place to check out.

Beautiful but be careful of crowds (and litter)
Sep 2020
The eye itself and the surrounding river are absolutely stunning. The water is very clear and there are lots of frogs, fish and dragonflies in the area. We arrived quite early (around 10am) so got there just before the crowds descended but it would be hell at peak times. The viewing area and tracks are quite small and as it was we had to wait 10 mins or more for the instagram queens to take their 200 selfies. Also, despite there being a few bins the surrounding area is covered in litter. Who goes to somewhere as beautiful as this and drops litter?1 I picked up at least 5 plastic bottles, several cigarette packs and a flip flop (!) from the viewing area itself! Also, there is no toilet (unless you buy something at the restaurant)

Terrible road to an average attraction
Aug 2020
Visiting the Blue Eye was on our list while returning back home from Saranda. This natural attraction is on the road to magnificent Gjirokaster, some kms off the main road.
BUT, that part - from the main road to the spring is catastrophic, you need a SUV vehicle. And, it's not short, but few kms - at about the half I've regret my decision for the Blue eye and wanted to turn back. It's an unpaved off road with hundreds of potholes and rocks, in some places very narrow, impossible to bypass.
The Blue Eye is nice, but nothing spectacular. The nature is wild with beautiful and lush greenery and left a stronger impression on me than the 2 m diameter spring where you only see the deep blue water coming out.
Don't expect to swim there as the water's very cold.
Arrive as early as you can due to crowds.
If I knew the road conditions and what I'm about to see I'd skip it, so conclude yourself.

Worse to do
Aug 2020 • Couples
Place is rather small. To get the amazing blue colour, you need to be there in first half of the day

Jumping into the Blue Eye!
Aug 2020 • Family
Nice escape when driving from Saranda to Girokaster. The blue water and the surrounding are beautiful but a little crowded. Jumping is a thrill!

The Blue Eye
Jul 2020
An interesting upwelling of frigid water that resembles a blue eye. The water is a spring that comes from deep inside the ground resulting in a beautiful clear lake. There were many people disrobing to brave the clear and very cold water.
