Saranda lies on the Albanian mainland opposite the Greek island of Corfu. Ferry links connect the two countries, and there are a few ferries per day with different companies, both Albanian and Greek. We travelled with Ionian Ferries, who have an office in Corfu. Saranda town itself has a sheltered bay for swimming.

I didn't have to many expectations about Sarande so when I arrived I was pleasantly surprised. For a coastal resort city it is very pleasant. When I visited it was the shoulder season and there were few tourists and I stopped to chat with some local fisherman.

With a population of 30,000 this is the largest city on the Albanian Riviera. I found the town a little overbuilt with high-rises, several looking unfinished for good. I also was discouraged with the lack of good restaurants. It is a good base (really only base) for exploring Butrint which is a must. But I encourage one to go up the coast to the smaller more scenic Himare.

Sarande al sur de Albania, es una muy buena propuesta para pasar unos días en las playas del Adriático. Es una ciudad mediana, apretada contra una colina que se desliza hacia el mar. Cuenta con buen servicio hotelero y gran cantidad de restaurantes. Y de allí se pueden hacer excursiones a varios lugares imperdibles como la antigua ciudad de Gjirocastra, el espectacular sitio arqueológico de Butrint, el enigmático Blue Eye y hasta la isla griega de Corfú, que tiene ferrys diarios.

Saranda es la ciudad costera más importante. Ubicada en el sur de Albania. Se suele llenar de turistas de todo el mundo en temporada de verano que vienen a Albania en busca de playas. Justamente las playas de Saranda no suelen ser las mejores.

Yo recomiendo las de alrededores. Son más limpias y mucho más tranquilas. Sin tanta gente.
