Ksamil Village, Saranda

3.1
#2 of 7 in Historic Sites in Saranda
Sunbathe, rent a paddle boat, or swim around the clear waters at Ksamil Village. This coastal village survives on the tourist industry, so there are plenty of places near the beach that offer you facilities, including hotels, restaurants, and shops selling beach essentials and snacks. Rent a lounge chair and umbrella and spend some time with a refreshment while you check your email on the beach's free WiFi. Break up your beach time by paddle-boating to the nearby islands. If you're a strong swimmer then you may choose to swim to the islands. Ksamil Village is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our online itinerary creator, Saranda Edition.

  • If in the previous review I gave 5* to Ksamil Village for the landscape, now I give just 2 star for the rest. The beaches of the village were overcrowded last year and the was very bad from the cleani...  more »
  • Ever seen a more absurd than House Hotel restaurants umbrellas cars bathers. Of 12 beaches I visited 1, standing in a small island accessible by boat through a poor Charon rowing tireless, and that would be very bad, if you don't see the clear signs of the excavator that extends the beach same champing rock wall and 12, just outside the town, pleasantly edged with green. The other 10 are appendages of the agglomeration of above.

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.
