It faces Corfu Island and it’s also the closest point between Albania and the Island. This beach is different from the other beaches in southern Albania due to its shallow waters, a fact that makes it a perfect bathing place for children. #visitalbania #tripaway

#tripaway Cape Merli is a private beach in the south of Albania. A fairytale vacation spot, otherwise known as the "European Maldives". The beach in the south of Saranda is not much explored by tourists, because a private villa complex is being built there. The white sand, the crystal clear sea and the steepness of the rocks with the stairs that lead to the sea after descending from the villas make Cape Merli very special. This magical place has been given the name of "Cape Merli" or Cape of the Black Bird, as centuries ago in this area among the bushes lived bird colonies. These dense moss bushes that dominated the earth were also referred to as the mythical plants of Aphrodite, which were considered a symbol of well-being and beauty. The locals have called the place ‘Cape of the Black Bird’. The ecological approach to the architecture used for the tourism project has made it possible to build a natural value system that will be implemented with human care, encouraging the Thrush to return once again. Respect for nature remains the ultimate guide to the concept of architecture. The project covers a large area and is divided into two areas respectively: Northern Peninsula This area is characterized by hotels and villas on the south side. The hotel will be five-star and will have 207 rooms, 3 luxury suites, 3 restaurants, 2 bars, conference rooms, SPA & Wellness Center. While in this part will be built a seaport for yachts with (10 parking lots), 16 Marine type villas and 4 luxury villas, each with pool. Southern Peninsula In this area will dominate the family rooms mainly a family hotel and villas which will have an extension on the east side. The hotel will have 250 rooms, suites, bars, restaurants, an amphitheater, conference rooms, SPA & Wellness Center, 2 yacht ports (with more than 90 parking spaces) as well as 33 Mediterranean type Villas, each with swimming pool. #tripaway

Himala is a small town in Albania near the Adriatic. With a clear blue beach, we arrived at Himala in the evening, and the car was hugged by the golden sunset. The sky in the distance was dyed orange-red and it continued to burn for more than 20 minutes. We are like this. The sky came down to the hotel, and then the sky turned dark blue. evening is the most beautiful time of Ximala. Every day the sunset is full of enthusiasm. It lasts for nearly an hour. We sit at the beach and watch the sunset go a little bit, not only contracting a large beach but also The whole sky.
