Vlorë sits on a bay that marks the meeting of the Adriatic and the Ionian seas, which means clean waters and briliant beaches. With over 300 sunny days a year, too, it’s easy to see why it’s a popular beach resort. But if you prefer your beach to come with a side of city slicking, Vlorë also fits the bill.
The city beaches can be a bit crowded and unkempt at the peak of summer when the mercury soars, so visit on either side of peak season. Plazhi i Ri is the best bet. There are also quieter and more appealing beaches just south of the city – the locals love Orikum.
For a real escape, catch a boat to the Karaburun Peninsula, which is pretty free of development and offers pristine white pebble beaches.

The restaurants that are worth staying in for, Their seafood linguine displays a light touch not found in some of the older places, while their seafood platter overflows with mussels, langoustines and white fish. Expect a decent pick of crisp Albanian wines to go with your dish, too.
