You can start of at its northern end by coming over the highway from Tirana and then Vlora or first land in the southern town of Saranda by coming from the inland from Gjirokastra or from the Greek island of Korfu by ferry.
The three islands of Ksamil in the South give you fine, sandy beaches whereas the rest of the coastline is made of white pebble stones – either way the water is magnificently clear and looks like a gigantic swimming pool.

Hikers may visit the Karaburun peninsula for the 2000m high Mount Çika that end of April is still snowcapped and later in the evening turn into swimmers when they continue their trip down onto one of the nearby beaches.
Canyoning in Gjipe, canoeing to deserted and otherwise unreachable beaches or paragliding from the Llogara pass down to Dhermi are just some of the many exciting adventures you can embark on.

Families might prefer cozy hotels with nearby beaches, crowded or less frequented – the Riviera has them all.
