One of Albania’s most picturesque and glamorous beaches, Himarë enjoys some of the country’s best beach weather. All year round, the temperature is warm, the sun is shining, and the long stretches of soft white sand seemingly stretch on into eternity. There’s a real sense of timeless beauty here with the sapphire sky, deep turquoise sea, and an unrivaled fun beach vibe.
Pine groves and rows of olive trees are something of a staple of Mediterranean life and they’re to be found in abundance fringing the area surrounding the beach.
Himare’s main beach sits at the tip of a bustling resort town. Neon nightclubs, hillside cafés and seafood restaurants - enjoy them all while watching sailing and fishing vessels come and go out on the idyllic harbor.
Nearby is Porto Palermo Castle, an early 19th-century structure that features a star fort, lighthouse, and some well-preserved examples of architecture of that period. But the area’s history is far older than that; an ancient Greek town existed on the site, and the Ottomans arrived in the mid-17th century. As such, Himarë stands as a unique blend of Greek, Albanian, and Turkish culture.
The whole Himare area has a laid back feel to it, making Himarë Beach one of the finest places to chill out and soak up some sun in the entire Southern Mediterranean.
