The beach of Dhërmi, Albania (Photo credit: Wikipedia)
An idyllic place with fine sand and clean blue sea. The beach is reached by a small side street on the hill. The village of Dhermi is very nice, with old buildings in a mix of Venetian style and greek, in addition to the fascinating monastery Panaija. There are many hotels and restaurants but few near the beach.
Getting here: halfway between Vlora and Saranda. Buses Durres-Vlora-Saranda, off the intersection for the Plazhi Dhermiut and walk.
