The Beach Guide

Grama Bay

Situated on Albania’s Ionian Sea coast Grama Bay is a small but beautiful cove almost surrounded by high, rocky cliffs. This semi-secret little beach is one of the real gems of the Albanian coast and as of yet completely untouched or spoiled by mass tourism. If you do make it here you won’t be disappointed; the crystal clear azure water rivals anything Greece has to offer and the colour is amplified by the white of the beach and cliffs before they give way to the green of vegetation.

The bay is set within not one, but two national parks - the mountainous Llogara National Park and the Karaburun-Sazan Marine Park. Not only does this ensure the future protection of the surrounding scenery but means the area is a haven for wildlife including one of the rarest species of seal on the planet - the Mediterranean monk seal.

Now for the bad news (or maybe good news). There are no roads to Gama Bay - in fact the closest you can get by car is several kilometres away, across hilly and remote terrain - something for . The obvious way to get here is by boat and there is a good chance you will have this stunning cove to yourself.

The bay here has a long history and if you visit it is worth checking out the inscriptions in the rocks of the sheer cliff faces. There are over 1,500 carvings which range from the times of the Ancient Greeks right up to the Second World War when the bay was a special operations base.
