Ksamil Islands

Once in sunny Sarande, you’ll have to quickly explore a bit of the city by taking a walk at the seaside promenade and enjoy a meal or a drink at the many restaurants and beach bars. When in Sarande a  must see are the ruins of Butrint. Butrint is considered as one of the most important archaeological sites in Albania and has ruins of civilizations of Hellenistic, Roman, Venetian, and Byzantine periods. It was as declared a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1992 and a National Park in 2000.


Just 35 minutes driving from the port we suggest the Blue Eye, a water spring and natural phenomenon near the village of Muzine, in Finiq municipality, southern Albania. A popular tourist attraction, the clear blue water of the river bubbles forth from a depth of more than 50m. Divers have explored the site, but it is still unclear what the actual depth of the karst hole is. Even in the summer, this natural wonder’s water remains between 8-12°C. The biggest spring, the Blue Eye gained its name due to it having the shape of an eye. The deep beautiful colors of the water are in stark contrast to the dense green vegetation surrounding it.
