Saranda – THINGS TO DO
Plazhi i Pasqyrave – Mirror Beach if translated from Albanian – is a wonderful place to be in, with gin-clear water, majestic Dinosaur rock, coarse sand and magnificent views, Corfu is just a hop and a skip away, across the gulf. The beach is a must-visit spot for cliff jumpers and snorkelling enthusiasts. The best way to get to the Mirror Beach is from the sea with your luxury yacht tender.
Historic Saranda is charming and curious, with the attractions as diverse as Hillary Clinton monument and ruins of a V century synagogue. The ancient city of Butrint, a UNESCO World Heritage site, is about an hour away by the yacht, and the village of Ksamil and pictorial uninhabited islands are even closer.
Saranda is a brilliant diving destination: two impressive wrecks and plenty of scenic caves, great transparency and good visibility. Novice divers will appreciate a 10 m deep Shtëpi e Sirenë, a beautiful cavern with picturesque corals and numerous schools of fish darting around the diver.
