Durres beaches

Durres is famous for beaches that are long and sandy. Situated on the waters of the Adriatic Sea, the facilities are great for relaxing with children, because the entrance to the water and the fall of the sea floor are very mild here. Sea waters are very clean and blue, so they encourage bathing. Keep in mind, however, that the closer your city is to the beaches, the more crowded the water is. If you want to swim or relax in a quieter environment, then go outside the city center for less-traveled episodes. By choosing to spend your holidays in one of our range of holiday lettings in Albania, you will also have the opportunity to enjoy a range of water sports and marine observation. Particularly rich in fish and sea life are sections of the coast, located behind the city. You can also take advantage of the cruise coupled with the open sea diving. The most popular beaches in and around Durres are: Golem, Mali Robit, Kavaja Rock, Lalzit (25km from the city) and Portez (13km from the city).
