Great destination for summer

It is a small and quite village. It's worth to spend some days here in the summer and enjoy the sea.

A very calm place. Not much life when we were there but still ok. Very clear water and a very nice little restaurant. Not a party place wich is good. More like a family place.

Amazing beach with sunbeds and parasols for only 500 AL. Cozy small restaurants near the beach with a great food and homemade wine

Easy to get in by a public bus (to Butrint) from Saranda. Way to each beach is not marked perfectly and you might end up to a beach that is not absolutely the best one (although still being a rather nice spot). Abundance of restaurants and grocery stores. You might want to include a visit to Butrint historical site to... More

a place you should be. Nice water, nice beach , very special place of the south of Albania. It lovely to stay there and have some time for a beautiful view , sea. You visit the small island in front of you which so closed.

Whoever gave this place the title 'the Albanian bora bora' is either blind or a marketing genius. Whilst it was nice, it's nothing more than a very touristy and very busy Mediterranean beach resort.

Ksamil is being called a albanian Bora Bora. I think this is albanian Ksamiil. A wonderful and memorable place to see, to be and to enjoy. Especially beach next to Gouvari restaurant. There is a deck you can hire 2 sunbeds&umbrella just for 800 LEK/a day (5 EUR).No need water shoes-there is sand in this beach.

This is a stunning beach that looks like a postcard. You have to rent a chair from one of the restaurants but it is quite cheap (around 5 euros at most) and generally comes with wifi.

Ksamil has one of the best beaches I have ever seen. Unlike most of the other beaches in Albania, the ones in the area are sandy, with shallow water appropriate for kids and bad swimmers (like me). The islands in the back add to the beautiful scenery. Water is that beautiful bright blue, which looks even more beautiful with the... More
