    Worth a Short Trip
    Nice walk to the Island. Note you can drive your car down to the beginning of the walkway. We parked on the road where we saw others parking but then it was at least a km walk to the walkway. Monastry had a nice little area with icons, the possibility to light some candles but not much else available to explore.

    Gorgeous Views and Peaceful
    Zvernec Monastery is located on Narta Lagoon. I walked from Vlore, but about 20 minutes with a car. You will be able to see marine life in the lagoon: fish, crabs and some flamingos if you're lucky. The monastery is very well maintained, beautiful and peaceful. Make sure you visit the nearby naval bunker, fire control bunker, lighthouse, beaches- all with beautiful views. Most visitors miss these places.

    Nothing specia
    Nothing really special. Limited parking, narrow access road and not a particularly inspiring place. Not unattarctive, but the drone shots really flatter it. There's not a lot else in this neck of the words so if you're looking to kill an hour or so go for it. Otherwise find a beac

The small island covered in pines, hosts a 13th century byzantine Monastery of St. Mary. To get to the monastery you have to follow a wooden bridge (270 meters). Ambient interior. The whole area is very picturesque, especially at sunset.

There is a new wood bridge that brings you to the island to visit the Monastery and for those who want more adventure they can go into the forest of the island. You can ride even a bicycle to go on the island. There is a very old Manastiry.

Historic monastery 20 minutes by car from Vlore. The monastery is situated on a small island. Appropriate and respectable clothing is required.

The monastery itself is a beautiful building on a small pine island accessible by a long sinuous pedestrian bridge. The road to get there, however, is horrible: rubbish absolutely everywhere, potholes, slums. We almost turned around but glad we didn't as the monastery was gorgeous.

My husband rented a car and we went to Zvernec Monastery witch was not very far from our hotel. The location is lovely, the monastery is on a small island and to get there must cross a nice bridge. The place is just perfect for photo shooting!

The monastery is nice, the boardwalk better, but anyway the beaches and bars along the way to get there are even better!
