Not easy to get there by public transport. However worth of effort. Perfect place to enjoy beauty of the nature. Cascades of crystal clear freezing water flowing down the mountains and coming out of 50m depth natural well. After short walk you can enjoy meal in restaurant located at platform over the river.

Very nice place for a short visit. The nature is superb... There was a small eating place under renovation due to the season we visited but the suroundings were beatiful. A nice place to visit if you are around.

No doubt, it is impressive to see, but is it worth travelling there on a very bad access road? Some people like to jump into the extremely cold water.

Not wanting to pay the cruise excursion price, we decided to wing it and see what we could do in the port of Sarande to visit the Blue Eye. We were able to book a mini-van tour at a considerable cheaper price. Our driver picked us up at the information center and took us to the Blue Eye. There is... More

A very pleasant site with a most unusual pool/lake. The water bubbles up from more than 50 metres below and is an incredibly electric blue colour. Never seen such clear water. From the side of the lake it's almost as if you're looking through the water rather than just down into it. Very difficult to describe! There's also a little... More

Lovely place to visit if you get impressed by nature, but the water was freezing. I could not spend more than 10 seconds inside. I went in October, so it was almost empty. We hired a driver to get us there but the place is not difficult to find if you rent a car but the road is not good,... More

This spot is well described and praised in a lot of touristic leaflets and other Internet information sites. It deserves its 'fame' among tourists that search less known places. It is a very beautiful and unusual spring and seeing it you understand where its name comes from. It is a lovely place to visit, especially on a hot summer's day,... More

If you're in the south near Saranda then it's definitely worth a visit but otherwise probably not. The Blue Eye pool itself is smaller than I expected and overcrowded. The turquoise streams nearby are great and you can sit and eat in the restaurant overlooking it.

What a delight in a fast paced cruise schedule! This diversion into the rural area was wonderful. We were on an excursion from the ship, and had a bus to the site. Very rustic and a bit of walking, but magnificent to see this natural gem.

Intense colour, pure water, serene setting (errrrr......if only there weren't others present). I hope that they take care of this lovely setting.
