About Ksamil

Located in the south of the Albanian Riviera and known for olive oil, lemon and tangerine production in the communism period, Ksamil is a coastal village. It is a perfect place for relaxation with its sandy beaches, clear water and fresh marine products. This small paradise in the south of Albania has been a popular destination receiving a great number of tourists recently. The first destination to choose in Ksamil, which has some of the most beautiful beaches of Europe, should be Saranda and Ksamil Beach near Corfu. If this beach is too crowded for you - because generally it is - you can consider the tiny islands around by taking a short walk. Monastery Beach between Saranda and Ksamil is also worth visiting; you can reach there via a short journey by bus. Before the beach, you can first visit the monastery and then walk to the beach. You can also watch the sunset from the monastery.
