Dhërmi beach is often cited as the finest beach in Albania - hard to argue with this when this is where Albaninian prime ministers allegedly come to holiday! It isn’t hard to see why. Set in a small bay, the village clings to the high sloping cliffs which rise up from the beach.
The beach here is everything you would expect from the Ionian coast. The water here is warm, crystal clear and a pure turquoise - perfect for taking a cooling dip or snorkelling. Whilst the beach itself is made up of fine pebbles rather than sand this just adds to the beauty with their near-white contrasting with the blue of the sea.
Given all this accolade it is not surprising the beach gets quite busy in the summer. Visitors are well catered for with a number of beachside fish restaurants and plenty of bars. However, it is usually easy to find a quiet spot further up this 1 km long beach even in the summer months. Out of season things rapidly queiten down and you’ll have your pick of where to throw your towel and just listen to the sound of the sea gently lapping the beach.
