The Blue Eye - Syri i Kalter, Vlore County

4.3
#1 of 54 in Parks in Albania
A natural spring, the true depth of the The Blue Eye - Syri i 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.

  • Beautiful place next to an artificial lake. Basically it is a great source of this river that flows from the bottom of it. Unique natural spectacle, the reflections and the purity of water are unique. Not to be missed

  • It is a very beautiful place. A must visit site in Albania. Unfortunately the reason for 3 stars is the awful condition of the road and the frustration of heavy trafic and the challenge of finding parking spot. There is nice bar and restaurant as well. The water of the river is crystal clear and at some places even 3m deep. Hope they will fix the road and make the place easier to access.
  • Very beautiful place to visit,with good restaurants. Incredible nature!
  • Amazing place. You have to visit it. We tried to take the bus from Saranda center (300lek single) but was a bit of a mess. Lots of people, we couldn't go on the bus even if we wait more than 1 hour. The best thing is share a taxi with someone, it costs 40 euro return. Also the taxi can drive right to the lake and save you 2km walk.
  • Amazing place, would hundred percent recommend to visit this place.
  • The source of blue eye was very crowded of people in the middle of August. Most of them were not respecting rules and the place. It was clearly writen not to dive and swim kn the water but a lot of people were inside. The road is destroyed, but the park is nice.
