Sarande, although full of tourists in the summer, is well worth staying for a few nights if you have at least 2 weeks in Albania. The good thing about here is the availability of good food everywhere, the walkable distance to different beaches and the lovely views from the monastery and the castle. We stayed here for 3 nights and really enjoyed going to Haxhi restaurant the most for their good food and excellent service. We also met very accommodating owners at Saranda Holiday rent a car when we wanted to rent a car. From Saranda, you can visit Ksamil, Lucove beach, Borsch and the Blue Eye.
