Qeparo Beach (qeparo)

Qeparo Beach - Albania

Situated on the magnificent Panormi Bay, Qeparo Beach is roughly 13 kilometres from Himara. It is backed onto by the small but relatively famous village of the same name, which is divided into old and new sections and hides a variety of surprises include a castle that once belonged to leader Ali Pasha.

The most notably addition to Qeparo Beach, however, has to be the line of Cold War domed concrete bunkers ordered by dictator Enver Hoxha to prevent the anti-communist invasion he feared. Now many at Qeparo have been painted bright pinks, yellows, and blues, altering the atmosphere entirely.

The majority of this shingle beach is free of beach furniture, though there is a small area with parasols, as well as thatched shelters, orange, and olive trees that create shade from the summer sun. Though the beach itself is made up of shingle, step into the azure blue waters and you’ll find a sandy bottom stretching towards distant Corfu on the horizon.

A family-orientated destination, Qeparo Beach is also enhanced by the esplanade that runs alongside it. Not only is the esplanade a great place for a stroll beside locals, but offers various choices when it comes to food and drink.
