  • the absolutely unexpected places, from Albania hidden unspoilt natural beauty. Among these, I should definitely mention the beautiful Gjipe, a stretch of pale sand overlooking a turquoise sea, located at the end of the so-called Canyon of Gjipe, a natural wonder that has no parallels in any other corner of the country. Between the two villages of Vùno and Ilias, in full southern Albania, lies the beautiful town of Gjipe, difficult to locate on a map and just as easy to reach. It is no coincidence that this beach has remained virtually untouched, frequented almost exclusively by tourists who love trekking and nature, arranged like me to walk at least 20 minutes before reaching the sea. It is actually a rather secluded white sand beach, surrounded by fragile walls and dense vegetation, overlooking the clear sea and very clear. Here and there one finds some umbrella available for hire and, slightly secluded, there is also a small kiosk and a Spartan dining where you can buy something to eat during the day. In essence, Gjipe proves the perfect destination to relax in the Sun, swim in total peace and enjoy snorkeling to the discovery of fish and small marine species that inhabit the depths. Given the beauty of the beach, almost strange to say that the true natural attraction of the place is the Canyon, yet it is so. Nearly 80 meters and completely covered by a thick vegetation and rugged, this natural canyon is characterized by the presence of large rocks and a path that resembles a riverbed. The more adventurous can even reach the beach through the entire canyon, beautiful and scary at the same time. Others prefer to trace the path to the beach, discover the natural beauty that characterizes the area. I recommend them both and still in both cases, you have to be adept walkers, especially given that the route is not marked by any particular indication, which makes it all the more difficult. An adventure. But it's absolutely worth the risk, given the wonderful view that the Canyon itself. Ways to reach the beach of Gjipe seem to be rather different. Trekking lovers will not have any problems to opt for a walk through the canyon towards the turquoise sea. Conversely, those who prefer a more comfortable solution, there is the possibility of a walk on gravel road connected directly to the main coastal route: it will take at least 30 minutes of walking, but the effort was well rewarded. Fun and original option to reach Gjipe aboard a rented kayak in nearby Jale Beach, just a couple of kilometres away. More adventurous tourists, solutions that are well suited to anyone who is curious to see this stunning landscape in the heart of southern Albania. Lovely really.

  • A very beautiful place, prices are a little overboard, the service does not compare to the price you pay, a lot of party nights, will not recommend to familys or people whom wants to relax. every thing else is good.
  • One of the most beautiful beaches in southern Albania. Place to be for camping, sunbathing and partying. Few years ago we had a chance to visit a reggae festival at Jala beach, and experience was really amazing. Make sure to visit nearby wild beaches, as Jala has many hidden treasures for you to discover.
