Blue Eye (Syri Kalter), Saranda

4.2
#1 of 17 in Parks in Albania
Water Body Nature / Park
A natural spring, the true depth of the Blue Eye (Syri Kalter) has yet to be measured. The pool is the source of the Bistricë River which flows to the Ionian Sea. The clear, electric blue water gets its color from minerals pushed up from the bottom of the pool, in contrast to the greens and browns of the land around. Climb the metal platform above the water, from where you can look down on the lake. Enjoy a refreshment at the cafe's dock over the pool. The road to the attraction is rough, so use caution with rental cars. Put Blue Eye (Syri Kalter) and other Saranda attractions into our Saranda trip builder, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • A unique wonder, is to see it from above, which dive in the cold spring and turquoise deep point.

  • To get there, you have to walk a very rough road, taking a long time, but once it is amply satisfied. The place is magical, really blue, transparent water. We arrived after dark, but the place has kept his poetry. I managed to take some pictures and to climb to the top of the waterfall. It was not possible to make more, but I'm still glad I went. There was a small kiosk selling local products, open up to people.

Where to stay in Saranda

Albania’s best-known seaside city, Saranda caters to tourists with accommodations clustered along the waterfront, which is exactly where you’ll want to be too. Resort hotels line the shore, offering views of the sea and Greece across the water. Albania remains a pretty cheap tourist destination, but the cost of a seaside room falls in the more expensive range. Head farther back from the beach to find lower-budget hostels, still within walking distance to the water.
