A truly beautiful beach. A bit of a walk down from the car park off a single lane (with passing spots) road. A few small places to eat and of course sun shades and beds. Crystal clear water and not too busy when we visited.

It's very nice and not crowded in September, as well romantic when you reach the small beaches behind the big rocks.

Well, I expected so much more because everybody was fussing about this beach. First of all our hike to this beach was quite dangerous. I was with my bf and parents (they are over 60 years old) and when we saw the first tiny parking...More

While this is a lovely little spot, it is definitely no longer a hidden gem. It is a jaunt off the main road and then a 20-25 minute minute walk down an old dirt and formerly partially paved road. Walk affords lovely views of the...More

When reading things about it on the internet, we expected less people and less bars/restaurants. You can choose to walk a short 3km hiking trail with some (not always great) panoramic views or follow the (less entertaining but easier) main road to the beach (only...More

Wonderful turquoise water with spectacular surroundings. A bit of I hike down/up that can be hard if you're not fit and if it's hot. 3 small restaurants/bar for some easy food, nothing special, I would rather bring some good sandwiches! Best beach I have seen...More

An impervious road to drive or walk through to arrive to paradise: pebble stone beach with cristalline water. Underwater caves, nice bars, and a place where to camp just behind. Definitely one of the best and most charming places in Albania

Enjoyed the beach, although it was a bit crowded in August. We stayed all day, swam in the crystal clear water and hiked a bit in the canyon. Very beautiful. We hired a boat to drop us off and based on the long hike up...More

If planning to visit Gjipe, prepare yourself for a beautiful beach and a couple of terrible beach bars/restaurant. This place is not normally accessible by the car so you will either have to walk a lot, which is not worth it or take a boat...More

Of all the beaches we visited in Albania, this was my least favorite. Tourist boats and wave runners with loud radios. Maybe it was the time of year, but the almost 2 mile walk down and then up in the hot sun (make sure you...More

It's not sandy, it's a beach with pebbles. So you will need flip flops, even if you don't have them the feet do not hurt. You can reach the bay via boat or by pickup or 4×4, or if you like hiking you can walk from the main... More

It is a virgin bay. It has nothing. No bar, no restaurant. The road can be accessible only by a pick up track, because it is a mountain road, or on foot. From the main road which is accessible even a normal car, the ruined... More
