We arrived again late to Saranda – one of the most charming towns of the Albanian Riviera. This summer seems like half Tirana relocates here to enjoy the busy beach and busier nightlife along its crowd-filled seaside promenade. What was once a sleepy fishing village is now a thriving city, and while Saranda has lost much of its charm in the past two decades, it has retained much of its charisma. The town beaches are nothing special apart Pllaka beach passing the small port, but Saranda is a great base for exploring the beaches around.
