Albania is something of an underrated gem with many stunning locations along its coastline, with the crown in its jewel being Livadi Beach.
This luxuriant getaway is famed throughout the Mediterranean for its idyllic coastline, deep blue watery depths, and olive trees as far as the eye can see. Size matters, and Livadi beach is one of the biggest beaches on Albania’s Southeastern Mediterranean coast, stretching more than 1.2 kilometers with more than 6 m of sparkling white sand.
The north side of the beach, named Gonia, is renowned for its incredible marble stones and awe-inspiring rock formations. The beach is also home to a lovely little aquarium, home to exotic fish and with elegant, yet relaxed, dining areas nearby.
Livadi beach is something of a local hotspot, with everything from water sports including canoes and paddle boats to jet skis prowling the sapphire waters and ivory white coastline come summertime. Beach volleyball is popular, with locals gathering near the San Marco bar day after day for fun in the sun. Steep cliffs overlook the entire scene, and are a great place to get a full panoramic view of the glittering waters and beach scenes below.
A blend of natural beauty and local amiability, Livadi Beach is a true Mediterranean treasure.
