Best Albanian Beaches

Updated: Oct 26, 2019

Albania is a beautiful country in South-Eastern Europe that definitely needs more attention! With pristine waters, white beaches, cobblestone streets and olive groves, Albania is the perfect European summer destination for half the price of Greece or Italy.

In no particular order, here are the top 8 beaches in Albania and what makes them special and unique! Let's get started.


Dhërmi Beach is one of the longest and most popular beaches in Albania. Situated in Dhërmi Town, it can be the most crowded during the summer but also one of the most beautiful. Its white rock aesthetic and nightlife is a crowd pleaser and is definitely a must-see when visiting Albania.


If you want to get away from the crowds at Dhërmi Beach, head to nearby Drymades Beach for more peace and quiet in the same beautiful setting. Much less people visit this beach but the water is crystal clear, the rock white in the sun, and a calming atmosphere awaits you.


Livadhi Beach is located in the village of Himara and is famous for the lush olive trees surrounding the beach and its deep blue water. The beach is divided into two parts: Gonia and Apelistra, both famous for the white rock in the water. There is also another small beach to the north named Fusa which can be even more private. This is the perfect place to relax, enjoy nature, and swim in the calm Ionian sea.
