    A bit dirty surroundings but the castle itself is rather interesting: well preserved, information cards and some pictures on the walls, and great view.

    Wonderful beach, with plenty beds which were really comfortable. The sea was super clean and the restaurant in the beach offers affordable pizzas and salads

    Nice beach with beautiful sea. Please keep in mind that there is no shower on this beach. The sun beds are around 600-700 lek/day. There are a lot of garbage on the beach. At the day time may be overcrowded.

    The road walking up from the car park is half of the fun. Deserted and inhabited houses, old olive tress, cobblestone walkways - it looks as if it did not change in the last 100 years or more. The views are amazing from the top and it is recommended to go in the morning rather than the afternoon. We loved the fact that it was not renovated and was left the way it is. Really beautiful place.

    Well preserved 200+ year old castle on an island. It is well worth a visit and do get inside to climb the few stairs to the upper floor. The history of this place is also interesting.

    First things first: although there is a walking path to it, DON’T GO BY FOOT, ONLY BY BOAT/KAYAK! Seriously, you have to partially climb to get there, and the path and rocks there are not stable at all. A friend of mine literally almost fell down the cliff as a rock he was holding on crumbled down. Don’t try it, it’s genuinely DANGEROUS. That being said, the beach is wonderful, nice little pebbles on the shore, beautiful rocky cliffs. The sea is also good for snorkeling. Watch out as there is not much shadow, except for a little cave on the right side.

    We spent three weeks in Himare and spent time here every day. It’s a laid back, family friendly beach with great water for swimming. Never once during our time there did we feel crowded, nor did we feel any sense of insecurity of any kind.

    There are two super friendly guys there who rent kayaks (one- and two-person), pedal boats, paddle boards and beach umbrellas. Prices for the rentals are very fair (600L for one hour on a two-person kayak; 1,000L for one hour with a pedal boat).

    The restaurant/bar strip is immediately behind the beach, so you have great access to restaurants, coffee shops, bars, markets and clothes/beach kit shops.

    We left at the end of June and it was just starting to get busier, but there’s plenty od room and had we stayed longer we would still have been there every day.

    Of course this is a nice beach but in my opinion there are better ones in Albania, for example, I liked more the Himare city beach than this one because the water was clearer, there were fishes, a nicer view. This beach is isolated but it does not mean it is empty, on the contrary, on a Thursday it had many guests. What I particularly do not like is that they have a station for water sports there so the different jet skis and stuff block your view. We did not pay for a sunbed and just put our towels near the water.

    This spot is very tranquil with an amazing view of Himara. The walk is a bit tricky - the way is hard to find and we got really lost. Luckily, a friendly shepard found us and escorted us to the monastery.

    The scenery and walk are both fantastic-you hike through ancient olive groves and past massive oak trees. Friendly goats will escort you much of the way. It should take about 2 hours from the centre of town.

    The monastery itself is lovely, but is still recovering from communist destruction.

    I highly recommend making the trip. It feels like a really special spot. It is really peaceful, and still off the beaten path. But take lots of water and get a local to show the way. Don't follow Google maps- the road leads nowhere.

    I can send photos of the way if it helps.

    One of our best stops on the all day Vlore-Saranda drive was on Porto Palermo beach. It is secluded in the bay of the small peninsula where's the Ali Pasha castle, which you should definitely visit (see that review).
    The Palermo beach is very small, but not crowded. It's just by the main road and there's a parking lot (unpaved).
    The sea was fantastic, crystal clear and calm like oil. Really great two hours spent there.

    Beautiful small beach. Not crowdy at all.Difficult road but worth it to the full amount. The last mile you better park the car and walk. If you have a4x4 no problem. There is also a platform you can put your car and tent. Amazing sunset. No facilities You have to bring your own. Entrance is at SH8 down a gravel road.

    I am not so much of a sun and surf guy to suggest beach 'x' in Himare is better than beach 'y'. I do know this was a nice stretch of beach: in a cove, white sand and shades of blue water. I don't need anything more than that to have enjoyed the place. The whole area is not nearly so busy as Saranda down the coast, another big plus.
